Hyperlocal As the farm-to-table concept goes main- stream, some operators take the next step by growing their own food on-site. Despite the evolution of this dining phenomenon, they still reach for the same rustic, eclectic and pottery-inspired plateware made popular by the connections to local farmers in the first place. "Restaurants are trying to make their guests feel like they are in someone's kitchen as opposed to just a traditional restaurant," says Matthew Starr, brand manager at Boston Showcase Co., a foodservice equipment and supplies dealer based in Newton Highlands, Mass. To highlight the hyperlocal concept, "We're seeing more things like walls of microgreens, and even tabletop installa- tions with fresh herbs and greens," Starr says. At Temporis in Chicago, each custom-made table in the dining room features a square in the middle where staff can place a planter box holding fresh microgreens grown hydro- ponically in the basement. Servers clip the greens right off the table and use them to garnish plates, which provides a super fresh and bright finish in front of the customers. Global Cuisine and Street Food Global flavors and street food continue to find their way into modern dishes, inspiring new renditions of authentic dishes that tell a story on every plate. trends dining » The rustic, pottery- inspired plateware at Temporis in Chicago eas- ily connects diners with the ultra-local, herbs-at- the-table, eclectic vibe of the tasting menu.
