  • Boutique meats and sausages.
  • The opening of astonishing (and often astonishingly priced) Japanese and pan-Asian restaurants, particularly in New York City.
  • Exciting additions to once-modest dining scenes in larger cities across North America.
  • The flowering of progressive Indian restaurants, particularly in Chicago.
