Meet the 2017 Hot Concepts award winners

Nation’s Restaurant News has selected five emerging restaurant chains for its 2017 Hot Concepts awards.

These forward-thinking brands are at the leading edge of foodservice, covering everything from a healthful and highly customizable fast casual with a counter-culture vibe to a localized gastropub with a new-school spin on old-school casual dining.

The chains include Bibibop Asian Grill, Bubba’s 33, Flower Child, New Bohemia Wurst + BierHaus and Public School on Tap.
