New trend: instead of wine/cheese pairings, alcohol/art pairings.  Beaujolais and Botticelli, for example, or chilled vodka or dry martinis with various high modernist/minimalist paintings, or Jeff Koons and blueberry daiquiris, etc.

New trend: savory cocktails.  Beyond the dirty martini, there’s now the feta martini, the prosciutto martini, the extra virgin olive oil martini, etc.  A hip variant is the “breakfast” martini: the standard gin or vodka drink with just a couple of drops of Aunt Jemima or egg yolk dropped in.

Vegetarian restaurant that serves not just faux chicken, beef, and pork, but faux human meat as well.  “Athlete steak,” “teenage girl filet,” “baby dumplings,” etc., all made out of seitan or wheat gluten and served with brown rice and stir-fried organic vegetables.
