New York, NY (PRWEB) January 03, 2013
BLB released a statement this week as the year came to a close and observations about 2012's finest and hottest trends, which has once again included some of the top trends from years before but also includes some new ones.
While many of the trends showing strength in 2012 were new to many people's radars, there were a few strong trends that were continued from years before, gaining strength and slightly evolving within that growth. Trends such as mobile food trucks, Italian food, mobile apps and of course Mexican and Asian cuisine, traditional and fusion, continue to gain traction in the ever-changing industry.
Bright Lights Business is most excited to see the continued changes within the Asian realm, which is seeing many non-Asian restaurants starting to offer tasty Asian options, as well as the changes to beer, vodka and dark spirits markets, which are all gaining in popularity by offering up new flavors and concoctions.
The popularity of Asian cuisine, especially among non-Asian diners, was shown earlier this month when BLB named Catch restaurant as the top non-Japanese restaurant serving sushi in New York. Catch is co-owned by Mark Birnbaum and was opened late in 2011 under the helm of chef Hung Huynh, Top Chef season three winner. Known primarily as a seafood restaurant, Catch is located in the Meatpacking District, which is one of the city's hottest areas for shopping, restaurants and it's ever-popular New York nightlife options.
Dining trends continue to evolve and change every year and this year's top trends show that it is possible to remain trendy from year to year as long as you do evolve. The popularity of Asian, Mexican and Italian cuisine are proof that certain styles will always remain popular but also that the style can adjust to modern-day wants and needs, and the eateries willing to do so are often the most popular.
