Food Trends in the Big City

Experts describe hip and healthy food trends in some major U.S. cities.

A Little Bit of Everything in Chicago

There's a food ban going on in Chicago, too, and it's got some fancy restaurants crying "fowl." The city of Chicago has banned foie gras (goose or duck liver), reports Carol Haddix, food editor at the Chicago Tribune. The high-fat, high-cholesterol gourmet item has been officially taken off city restaurant menus. And it sounds like goose liver may be just the beginning of food bans in Chicago. "Now the city council is aiming to ban trans fats, but that doesn't seem to be going anywhere right now," notes Haddix in an email.

Chicago may be halfway across the country from Seattle, but the small-plate craze is very popular there, too. According to Haddix, lots of restaurants all over town are going the "tidbit" route and serving smaller portions to happy patrons.
