What's Hot

The National Restaurant Association’s “What’s Hot” report is always one of the industry’s most anticipated precursors to the New Year. It surveys the foodservice professionals in the know—700 chefs from the American Culinary Federation—and comes up with a comprehensive list of the food, beverage, and culinary concepts everyone will be talking about in 2018.

“Local, vegetable-forward, and ethnic-inspired menu items will reign supreme in the upcoming year. Guests are implementing these trends in their own lifestyles and want to see them reflected on restaurant menus. In response, chefs are creating more items in-house and turning to global flavors,” Hudson Riehle, senior vice president of research at the National Restaurant Association, said in a statement.

Here are the Top 20 food trends for 2018.
