With the New Year finally here, it’s time to look ahead to 2022 celebrations, including weddings, graduations, bar and bat mitzvahs, and other social events. You’ve booked Tribeca Rooftop + 360°, plotted the room maps, hired the entertainment, found the most stylish decorations- but have you planned the menu for your special event? While it's true that good food never goes out of style, there’s nothing wrong with serving some of the year’s hottest food trends at your special event. Wondering what kinds of food will be popular in 2022? Here are just a few you can add to your special event menu at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC and wow your guests!
Mocktails are non-alcoholic cocktails that are inspired by the real thing. Mocktails can be made with bright colors to match your event decor, and you can even create signature mocktails to complement the theme of your event. One of the benefits of mocktails is that they don’t have alcohol, so even your youngest guests can drink them, and they’re perfect for those guests who abstain from alcohol.
There is a big movement towards plant based foods at restaurants and in grocery stores, as well as at special events. Whether it’s cauliflower ‘wings’ or vegetarian or vegan burgers, plant based foods can replace nearly any meat dish. Plant based not only impresses guests with their similarities to meat-based counterparts, they’re also perfect for vegetarian and vegan guests.
Charcuterie has been a food trend for the past few years, but the trend doesn’t show any signs of going anywhere anytime soon. Mix up your boards with a variety of cheese, cured meats, olives, crackers or bread, and more.
Mushrooms are slated to have a big year in 2022. Mushrooms are delicious on their own or even stuffed, but due to their texture often can be found in plant-based foods, piggybacking on the plant based trend.
As the world tries to go greener in 2022, plant-based and sustainable foods will become more popular. Sustainable foods like lentils are popular in Indian and other Cuisines. Lentils are said to be carbon neutral, and actually enrich the soil they are grown in, leaving it better than it was before the lentil was harvested. Other sustainable foods include mussels, bison, venison, and organic and locally grown produce.
