A new Brooklyn, New York restaurant is serving up avocado-based dishes giving customers a healthy and tasty meal option like never experienced before. This innovative eatery not only touts the nutritional benefits of avocados, but also explains how this single ingredient makes everything taste better. The menu incorporates raw ingredients, as well as non-invasive cooking techniques and draws influences from several different cuisines, including the use of pico de gallo from Mexico, shichimi from Japan and duqqa from Egypt. The avocados featured are organic and fairly traded to the United States, and the restaurant claims to only work with suppliers respectful of the environment and their employees.
IDEAS FOR TRADITIONAL OPERATORS:
- If avocados aren’t your thing, consider focusing on a similar ingredient to showcase on your menu. Be willing to take some risks to demonstrate your restaurant’s culinary expertise.
- Capitalize on your customers’ desire to “eat healthy” by highlighting the nutritional content of your featured menu items. Also, be sure to promote the various health benefits of select ingredients used in your dishes.
