New York City is known for many things — its sights, its Broadway performances, its attractions and historical landmarks — but one of the greatest features is its incomparable restaurant scene.

Throughout Manhattan, one will find a healthy balance of upscale restaurants, mom and pop stops, and places that fall somewhere in between. However, many of these establishments follow new trends to not only remain relevant, but to draw in a consistent crowd of patrons.

With that in mind, let us take a deeper look at some of the up-and-coming food trends one can find in New York City.

Reimagined desserts

Cookie dough served like ice cream, scoops of ice cream stuffed between two halves of a glazed donut, liquid nitrogen poured into milkshakes — the list of unique dessert options goes on and on. It seems as though the latest trend in desserts in New York City aims to strike a healthy balance between the quality of food and the quality of one’s experience, hence some of the strange combinations.

That being said, these desserts have been making quite an appearance on social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat — which could explain their explosive popularity.
