Break free from the same-old dining routine in 2014 and try 
something new with the help of To help 
you start your own dining adventures, has
compiled the 3 hottest trends to conquer at local restaurants 
near you. Resident trend-guru, President and
 Chief Marketing Officer Christopher Krohn provided his 
predictions that will grace our plate in 2014. With these trends,
 you're sure to have a spicy year, but only if you dare! 


1. Egg-cellent Adventures 

While it's hard to determine when this trend ignited, it'
definitely picked up pace and could reach its peak of popularity
 in 2014. The breakfast for dinner craze and increasing 
popularity of regional specialties, like Korean Bibimbap and
 Mexican Huevos Rancheros, will only grow the trend of egg-y
 fusions. Plus, there's an emerging sense from the scientific 
crowd that eggs are healthier than perhaps you previously 
thought, which will feed consumer interest in this farm-fresh 
favorite. All in all, 2014 will be the year of the egg, so you 
might as well get cracking! 


We dare you: Next time you order a burger or stir fry, ask them
 to top it off with a fried egg or two. The added protein 
will help boost your metabolism and satisfy your hunger! 


2. Farm to Fork 

Diners growing eco-awareness and their desire for the 
wholesome simplicity of home-style cooking and minimally-
processed foods is on the rise. Riding this wave, restaurants 
are returning to their predecessors roots, sourcing fresh 
produce and natural ingredients and cooking them up in a 
style that more closely resembles the authentic recipes that 
graced Grandmas kitchen table rather than modern, industrial
 food products. 


We dare you: When people hear farm to fork, they immediately
 think of steamed vegetables, but this trend 
encompasses more than just radishes and such. Tender meat 
alternatives and locally produced cheeses are two items to 
look for on the menu. Don't be afraid to order something 
with a beet or two for an added super food bonus! 


3. Tea Time, All the Time 

Once confined primarily to Asian restaurants, tea is an 
increasingly popular beverage. In 2014, you'll find tea used for 
 novel and surprising purposes. For example, ground teas like
 matcha and chai can be used as dry rubs and marinades 
for beef, chicken or veggies. Tea-smoked salmon and pork will 
both make headway in the new year, and English-style 
tea-time gatherings at local cafes will also be big. 


We dare you: To find these tea-fusion meals, take a trip to an 
Asian fusion restaurant near you and keep an eye out for 
tea-smoked pork, ribs, or stir fry. For an added bonus, try one
 of our other favorite food trends of 2014, a hot sauce like
