Ever wonder what Nation’s Restaurant News’ senior food and beverage editor Bret Thorn thought about the latest menu additions he writes about in his weekly column Menu Tracker? Well, now is your chance.
In this video edition of NRN’s Menu Tracker, Thorn gives his unfiltered thoughts on some of the hottest new menu items from the month of March – all filmed at the NRN headquarters in New York City. The only caveat is that the food had to be available locally, so some chains were off limits from our taste testing.
This month, Thorn tested food from Chipotle, Paris Baguette, Sweetgreen, Popeyes and Burger King.
Also, be sure to check out the video of Thorn and managing editor Leigh Anne Zinsmeister tasting the new chicken sandwich from Panera.
