Lion Burgers

Il Vinaio in Arizona Lets You Sink Your Teeth Into an African Lion

— June 26, 2010 — Unique
Cameron Selogie's restaurant Il Vinaio in Arizona is serving an uncommon dish: African lion burgers mixed with ground beef, served with chips and roast corn on the cob. Such burgers cost around $20 each, and Selogie is serving about 15 burgers a day.

Il Vinaio's lion burgers have drawn furious protests from animal activists, and Selogie is even getting threats from these protestors. Would you ever try a burger made with African lion meat?

Implications - These rare world class burgers, offered exclusively at Il Vinaio in Arizona, have gotten positive reactions from clientele, who can't deny the juicy goodness of a luxury dining experience like this one. While the food is an unconventional dining option, those adventurous enough to sink their teeth into one may be pleasantly surprised.
Trend Themes
1. Exotic Meat Consumption - As the popularity of unconventional burger options rises, there could be an opportunity for new restaurants to provide exotic meat-based menu items.
2. Plant-based Food Alternatives - Increased protests by animal activists could lead to a rise in the demand for plant-based food alternatives, and thereby create a market for new plant-based food companies.
3. Luxury Dining Experiences - Il Vinaio's exotic food creations indicate there may be a market for other luxury dining experiences, which could help upscale restaurants generate higher revenues.
Industry Implications
1. Fast Food Industry - Fast food chains may look to incorporate unconventional meat options to attract adventurous consumers to their menu items.
2. Animal Rights Activism - With increased animal rights activism, there could be more opportunities for companies to support and partner with animal rights organizations or create plant-based food alternatives.
3. Fine Dining Industry - Upscale dining franchises could leverage the trend of offering unconventional food items to attract customers looking for unique and unforgettable dining experiences.
