Restaurant Food Trends for 2017

Posted on: January 17, 2017 by RMS Hospitality

It’s that time of year again: time to take a look at the trends that are shaping the culinary forecast for 2017. From healthy kid’s menu options to lesser-known cuts of beef, implementing these trends will drive business and get customers in your clients’ doors this year. Therefore, in addition to protecting their entire operation from potential claims and financial liability with a Restaurant Insurance Program, share the following findings with them.

Novel cuts of meat.

Gone are the days when only filets and rib eyes were on the menu. This year, chefs across the nation are featuring lesser-known but equally delicious cuts of beef. From Vegas Strip Steak to oyster steaks and beef shoulder, menus are being spruced up with novel cuts of beef this year.

Dishes inspired by international street foods.

These foods serve as a gateway to other cultures, people, and places. Consumers get to discover flavors of local foods from faraway places and chefs get to create their versions of the ultimate dumplings, tempura, or kabobs, states the National Restaurant Association.

Sustainable seafood.

As more chefs and consumers are becoming aware of the impact that overfishing has created on our oceans and ecosystems, more and more culinary professionals are looking to cook with sustainable ingredients. Your clients should put a focus on where their fish is caught and sourced, and how it’s sustainable for the environment.

Healthy kid’s menus.

Naturally, kids are still going to love pizza, burgers, and fries. But, if your clients’ chefs can figure out a way to keep up with the emerging trend of serving kids delicious lean proteins and vegetables, they’ll make the parents and kids happy.

House-made charcuterie.

This is a cost-effective way to use up more parts of the animal in restaurants and reduce food costs. Curing meats in house is a great way to attract new meat-loving customers and save in the long run!
