Welcome to First Bite, a Nation’s Restaurant News podcast, your daily source of news from NRN.
Today, we’re talking even more about predictions.
A lot of crystal balls come out this time of year and they often display an intriguing forecast of what’s to come in the near term. For the restaurant industry, many of the recurring images appearing in those crystal balls have to do with technology.
According to Datassential’s 2023 predictions, for example, artificial intelligence will have a “huge” impact on the industry, not just by helping to develop new items but also by easing the continuing labor shortage. Chef Tom Aviv is an example of the former, having recently debuted a restaurant in Miami that uses DALL-E (AI) technology to help create the menu.
Executive editor Alicia Kelso is here to tell us more about tech-themed predictions for 2023.
Plus, catch up on all the top news of the day with our daily news recap at the beginning of each episode.
