Restaurant trends 2012

It’s a sad fact for the industry that banks are still not leading in any great numbers to small operators that want to expand and to individuals that have a great new concept and lots of passion who want to open their first restaurant. However there are plenty of new openings – the vast majority of which are by the existing high street chains as well as venture capitalist backing operators with a proven track record. Some predict that South American food will be big in 2012 and that “street food” will continue to evolve, embracing new cuisines, ideas and concepts. What do you think will be big in 2012?

  1. Interesting post. I am not too sure what will be the big thing of 2012 but if I was to take a guess, I would say South American food is correct but I would also say that Asian/British fusion seems to be appearing more on the radar and that certainly is an interesting combination. However, Mexican food was definitely on the rise during 2011 and could continue to rise in 2012.
