The National Restaurant Association asked more than 1800 Chefs what they felt were going to be the most trendy items going into 2010. Here is a snapshot of their results.
1 Locally sourced meats and seafood
2 Half-portions/smaller portion for a smaller price
3 Sustainable seafood
4 Non-traditional fish (e.g. branzino, Arctic char, barramundi)
5 Newly fabricated cuts of meat (e.g. Denver steak, pork flat iron, Petite Tender)
