This menu may contain allergen free ingredients
The French restaurant “Mon Histoire dans l’assiette” has created an innovative menu: it is entirely free of 11 of the most common allergens.
It also serves seasonal ingredients to show that the range of food guests - with some form of food intolerance or another - can eat doesn’t need to be so limited.
Why it matters
Restaurants have been more and more conscious about the need to cater for people suffering from allergies in the past years. The main difference here is that this restaurant places allergies at the forefront of their business. Is this a concept that will attract allergic and non-allergic customers to come together to discover a new type of creative cuisine? Is this a concept that we’ll see exported?
Grolsch has launched its own magazine in The Netherlands. The publication is called Eigen.Zinnig (Obstinate), and brings to life the character of The Netherlands.
HaiDiLao Hotpot restaurants in China are known for pampering customers while they wait for a table: they can get their nails done, eat a fruit plate or even get a massage. However, the waiting has been made even more worthwhile with a cash incentive.
The longer the wait, the bigger the cash discount a customer receives. All the customer needs to do while waiting is fold paper into cranes! For every paper crane folded, the restaurant gives a 0.5 yuan ($0.08) discount.
