Today’s diners seek modern, unique twists on classic fare. Consumers crave new foods and experiences but are comforted by familiar options. More than a quarter of consumers (27%) say they are ordering more foods with traditional, familiar flavors now than they were a year ago. Innovation will be inspired by the past; operators will highlight sourcing, especially farm to table, and use authentic ingredients in new ways. Nostalgic dishes like meatloaf and pot roast are even making a comeback at restaurants.
