From Crowdsourced Menu Rankings to Fruit-Covered Ceilings

These September 2016 restaurant trends are diverse and range from eye-catching restaurant designs to app-based tools.

Barcelona's 'La Dolca' dessert cafe is one example of restaurants turning to designs that stand out significantly. This particular space is completely fruit-themed, with a ceiling that is covered in large replicas of flowers, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. The unique decorative feature ensures that people who visit this space are likely to remember it.

Another innovation that is apparent this month is one relating to apps, with 'HelpMeOrder' being a specific example. The Canadian app is targeted at people who are undecided on where they would like to eat out, giving users the ability to vote for menus and dishes that they prefer. This ranking system allows users to offer their own opinions while also being able to attend restaurants and eat foods that have been approved by their peers.
