16 Food and Dining Trends You'll See Everywhere in 2022—According to Yelp's Forecast
2021 isn't over just yet, but the folks at Yelp are already looking forward to 2022. More specifically, the online destination filled with crowd-sourced reviews, just released its 2022 trend forecast. The list includes several foods and drinks that will (most likely) be popular next year, as well as emerging trends in the restaurant industry.
According to the data, the trend predictions were made with help from Yelp users as well as Yelp staffers who have been keeping an eye on the rise of new dishes and ingredients around the globe. For example, Yelp expects macadamia pancakes to see a spike in popularity next year because the interesting take on the breakfast classic incorporates the flavors of Hawaii. The state has been a popular travel destination in recent months, in part because of its "Safe Travels" program, which requires visitors to have vaccinations or a negative COVID-19 test in order to bypass quarantine rules.
When it comes to drinks, Yelp predicts a '90s favorite—the espresso martini—will have another chance to shine in 2022. The caffeinated cocktail has slowly but surely gained popularity in recent months, and can now be found on a growing number of cocktail menus at restaurants across the country.
Lastly, when it comes to restaurant trends in 2022, Yelp predicts that the COVID pandemic has had quite the impact on when and how customers dine out. Seeing as how pet adoption rates rose during the pandemic, it's no surprise that one of the top restaurant trends of next year is eateries that are dog-friendly.
