This week on Snacky Tunes it’s time for another trend report with TimeOut New York’s own Jordana Rothman. Tune in as she joins hosts Greg and Darin Bresnitz for a recap of last years trends–see what scored (local distilleries) and what flopped (tiki bars). Wanna know what is gonna be trending in 2012? We won’t spoil it here but be sure to be look out for the NoMad, light coffee roasts, modern Jewish food, and Pok Pok among other things. So listen up and get on the inside and with this exclusive episode of Snacky Tunes. This episode is sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

“Restaurants have kinda flaunted the rules. We’re paying less attention to what a western Continental restaurant should be like.”

“I think a lot of new breweries and microbreweries focus on innovation and technology rather than consistency and Bronx Brewery can be commended for focusing on one thing”

“Dark roasting came out of the west coast and it was something that was used to char and mask the flavors of sub-par beans.”

“I think that 2012 has been set up to be a year of personal restaurants, I think we are going to see idiosyncratic talents come to the fore.”

“Everyone needs to chill out about the Time’s [restaurant critic] seat, things change over time.”
