8 Hottest American Dining Trends of 2016

In restaurants, that is. According to the latest Zagat newsletter, they are:

Hawaiian food (mostly poke = raw fish salad)
handmade pasta
vegetable-focused cooking
wood-fired everything
healthy fast-casual (burger joints, salad bars, etc.)
multipurpose restaurant (restaurant + wine bar + food store etc.)
Japanese cuisine
fermented foods

Apart from vegetables and Japanese food, none of these come my way, so I guess I'm not with the trends.

Thanks for the alert--I've been spending time in the kitchen cooking our free Shoprite Turkey-20 pounder! I'll take a look at this article later. I'm very unknowledgeable on Hawaiian food and will have to check on fermented food as well. Regards, Len

From Anthony Bourdain's TV shows, it seems the key ingredient in Hawaiian cuisine is Spam.

Around Albuquerque, the food trends over the last decade has been toward more Asian food other than Chinese. Lots of Indian, Thai, Korean, and Vietnamese places. Barbecue is always big here, and the Korean restaurants, especially, have added some twists to it. I saw Carla Hall on THE CHEW a couple of months ago saying she had fallen in love with Singapore noodles when travelling in Asia but couldn't find that dish anywhere in NYC. She may not be able to find it in NYC, but I have eaten it three times at a place in Albuquerque called Jinja's Bar and Grill. I do not wonder that she loves it, too.

One can almost never get an Asian meal the way they serve them, with many delicious dishes put on the table at the same time. Everything has been modified to the appetizer-entree form custom in American cuisine. There is an excellent Chinese buffet in Queensbury, where all the Academic Bowl meets occur, where I can compensate for that, but look where I live and there is little else around here.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach

We love food like that-on our trip from a few weeks ago into we had Indian, Japanese and Vietnamese-we found a place in Chinatown where we had the best Vietnamese crepe we've ever had in the US and it was BYO to boot! As for the Singapore noodles would this help her find a place for the sngapore noodles?
