Five food trends to look out for 2018

Dining alone 

Think it’s sad to dine alone? Think again. Mad Men’s Don Draper made it cool after all. Encouragingly, the stigma of dining alone seems to be fading, with 78% of those surveyed by Waitrose believing solo dining is more socially acceptable now than it was five years ago, a shift put down to changing attitudes in the UK towards dining out.

Londoners are helping to fuel this trend, as they eat out multiple times a week, while counter restaurants like Barrafina and The Barbary turn solo dining into a social opportunity; a way of eating that has been championed in New York for decades. In addition to restaurants becoming more solo savvy, diners feel less self-conscious about eating alone now they have their smart phone for company. A good book also does the trick.

    Interesting article. I’ve also noticed that more restaurants are using professional video content to engage with their customers.
