Benchmark Hospitality International has announced five top dining trends for the future. They are: 1. Build your own meal, giving customers more freedom to assemble their own entrées with a menu of suggested pairing side dishes and options. 2. Top restaurants on both coasts are holding prices around $20 per entrée, making up the difference by using less-expensive cuts of meat and seafood with more-expressive cooking techniques. 3. How about a less-formal but more-fun lunch where choices are a trio of creative tuna fish sandwiches or shots of soup? 4. Mundane snacks are now housemade and fabulous, with hand-cut rosemary and garlic potato chips, and popcorn drizzled with truffle oil. 5. Fresh is best when it's uncomplicated and goes from sea and garden to the plate.
