Trend: a line of general direction or movement.
I can’t help but think that eggs on dinner menus is a rising trend.
The French and Spanish have served eggs for lunch and dinner for hundreds of years, so can it really be a trend if it’s been around that long?
Apparently, we are just now catching on. Eggs are peppering the menus of some of the trendiest restaurants across the country. Here’s just a sampling:
I tasted a smashing side dish at Zengo in Denver recently — green beans sauteed with soy sauce and finished with scrambled eggs.
In Scottsdale, The Mission plates up arepas (open-faced sandwiches with cornmeal patties instead of wheat bread) with an optional topping of a fried egg.
At Christopher’s, in the Biltmore Shopping Center in Phoenix, I had a lovely frissee salad topped with a gently poached egg and copious amounts of smoky bacon — a classic French bistro dish, to be sure, but all of a sudden trendy again.
Take a look at the menu of your favorite restaurant. Do you spot an egg?
