Wildly exciting food innovation in Chicago

I just read Jennifer Reigold’s article in FastCompany on wildly exciting food innovator Homaro Cantu Jr. and his Moto restaurant in Chicago. If this is the future of the cuisine experience…Let it roll.

In the same magazine there is an almost unbelievable reference to how successful the growth in fine food and beverage sales in Las Vegas. “Vegas food and beverage operations managed to extract $238.32 per person per day from visitors in 2004, for a stunning $2.3 billion in revenue.”

Thoughts: For affluent economies the ‘Experience Economy’ looks like it’s exploding in the fine food and wine sector.

KEY WORDS: Food; Lifestyle; Experience Economy; Innovation
