Millennials approved concepts

What do millennials prefer when it comes to food and what concepts make them feel at home?
Millennials are complex. They favor fitness and understand healthy foods more than their parents or grandparents did when they were young. But many of them don’t hesitate a second when ordering some of the most decadent fast food around, like over the top burgers, haute dogs and onion strings. As long as they are gluten free. The following concepts are Millennial-proof.
NoGlu, a restaurant and food shop in Paris, is dedicated to gluten-free and mostly dairy-free dishes. Founder and owner Frédérique Jules discovered her gluten intolerance in San Francisco a decade ago. The Frenchwoman opened her allergy-sensitive restaurant in 2012 in the historic Opera district, close to many American eateries like the Hard Rock Café and Chipotle. Influenced by her travels to the U.S., Jules is not focusing on American offerings. The menu reflects French, Japanese, Italian, and other cultures alongside American pastries.
Hank’s Haute Dogs
Forget about the traditional hotdog, it’s time for haute dogs. The same dish, only lifted towards a higher culinary level. Take Hank’s Haute Dogs in Hawaii for instance. You can find a bun with a lobster sausage seared in butter, then dressed with garlic-relish aioli, lettuce tomato and pickled takuan radish. Or the Hawaiian, with a Portuguese sausage, mango mustard and pineapple relish.
In 2011, scale producer Tanita opened Tanita Shokudo in downtown Tokyo. Every table sports a scale to carefully measure your meal and a timer set for twenty minutes, the time required to best consume your meal, according to professional diet experts. The menu offers two choices, both consisting of soup, a main course, two side dishes and white rice. The meals are never more than five hundred calories. A full body composition analysis calculates your body fat and offers you nutritional advice on the spot.
