New on the Menu: Cheeseburger soup, Kalahari truffle-infused gin

RH looks at buzzworthy food and beverage items across the country

Those of us at Restaurant Hospitality regularly see what independent operators are dishing out, but some menu items make us stop and stare — whether they involve an out-of-the-box way of using an ingredient, the appearance of a burgeoning trend or simply stunning presentations. We bring to you NOM: our New on the Menu weekly roundup.

The latest dishes and drinks that have us doing a double-take this week include a soup with all of the flavors of a cheeseburger, a black lava salt-rimmed cocktail, a fine-dining version of the classic poke bowl and a huge “Panther Bowl” drink featuring Kalahari truffle-infused gin and locally harvested honey.

See what stands out from the crowd.
