Restaurants are one of the best ways to treat your self no matter the occasion. The idea of selling food has always been in existence during the earliest civilization.
Geographically the restaurants were located in the middle of the countryside to make it easier for the travelers passing through. With restaurants not having a choice or a menu for that matter, each night was more of a chef's night which meant as to whatever was available locally for them to prepare and sell for profits. These small restaurants mostly served as a place for social gatherings. 
As time passed, restaurants started to get more competitive. Chefs and restaurant owners have become very competitive in their offerings to be at the top. Restaurants are constantly looking to innovate with food and ingredients to be the best. 

Here are some of the restaurant trends of 2019 :

1) Not so much of an April fool's joke for Burger King.

Burger King launched a campaign in April for partnering up with Impossible Food to offer a meat substitute. 
What may look like a real juicy beef patty is actually a plant-based patty. Since a lot of people are shying away from meat, Burger King believes this will be an ideal replacement. 

2) Dairy-free kinds of milk now have tough competition
