A pizza place, a burger joint, frozen yogurt and a wine bar. Who would have thought these would be the recipients of Nation’s Restaurant News coveted "Hot Concepts" for 2009? For a moment I was reliving 1989. But, in all honesty, this was one of the best panels, and most telling trend-wise, that I’ve seen in over 10 years of watching new restaurants come and go. All innovative, all focusing on artisanal, authentic high-quality foods and drinks offered at a really, really fair price. Not cheap, and not discounting, these new concepts have struck a chord with a discerning diner who simply wants great food at fair prices. Is that too much to ask?
