Top 10 food and drink trends for 2017

4th January, 2017 by Lucy Shaw

Many of us will be delighted to see the back of 2016 – a year that brought us Brexit, Donald Trump as President Elect and the untimely deaths of beloved musical icons, from Prince and David Bowie to George Michael.

While 2016 was an annus horribilis on many levels, the dynamism of the London restaurant and bar scene provided us with much-needed escapism and a plethora of places in which to drown our sorrows.

With the new year comes fresh hope and a chance to look forward optimistically. As is customary at db, at this time of year we like to look ahead and outline what we believe will be the big food and drink trends to sweep the UK capital this year.

With London enjoying its status as the culinary capital of the world, the pace of change in the city is lightening quick, making trends hard to predict, but we’ve come up with ten we think will make an impact this year, from tacos and Thai to closed-loop cocktails and the rise of counter dining.

Whether or not our predictions come true, London is on fire at the moment and continues to set drinking and dining trends rather than follow them.
