We all know the place that has this menu… it’s likely called a gastropub, and it probably has some minimalist, urban chic decor going on – think exposed brick, industrial lighting and poured concrete floors with an epoxy glaze on top.
The food isn’t bad, in fact they may even have 1 or 2 dishes you might recommend. It’s the kind of place that is the ultimate safe choice – sure to have something for everyone. This is what makes it interesting, yet ultimately harmless. Good menu, yet lacking distinctiveness. Trendy and new, yet oddly familiar. You have just stumbled into yet another trendy restaurant!
When I came across the menu shared below as a parody of trendy restos, I couldn’t help but giggle. It’s so spot on in terms of nailing the character of the hypothetical aforementioned place.
But don’t get me wrong. I don’t speak disparagingly… I just speak from a place of the foodie person who is often asked to choose the restaurant. When you have 6-8 ‘particular’ people, the trendy resto de jour is always guaranteed to not offend.
Whether you are the designated restaurant selector or not, I hope you found this as giggle-worthy as I did.Pin It
