Invasivorism as the Next Food Trend for Hotels
Larry and Adam Mogelonsky | May 4, 2022
By Larry and Adam Mogelonsky The English language sure loves its neologisms. (Don’t look this one up in your dictionary. It’s not there…yet.) The one in the title adds an ‘ism’ onto ‘invasivore’ where this latter word is ascribed to species that have been accidentally or purposefully introduced into a foreign environment where there are no natural predators to keep their numbers in check, thus diminishing biodiversity. Foremost examples are the African cane toads that have ravaged the Australian continent and the zebra mussels that have similarly become endemic to the Great Lakes. Specific to you, it’s important for hote...

Plant-Based Is Here to Stay
Larry and Adam Mogelonsky | March 16, 2022
By Larry and Adam Mogelonsky Climate change is something opaque and far-off. In our minds, thinking only about the environmental impact of eating meat is not what’s causing people to slowly shift to more plant-based diets or the most apt term of ‘flexitarians’ where people gradually shift to roughly an 80/20 split between plants and animal products respectively. Rather, people are shifting because the overwhelming scientific research is showing that it’s healthier to eat more unprocessed fruits and vegetables. Yes, in the near term we see headlines that say that Beyond Meat or other equivalents have flat quarter-over-quarter sal...

Top 7 Drink Trends in 2022
EHL Insights | December 23, 2021
After years marred by a global public health crisis, many of us are lapping up in-person social gatherings with friends, family and colleagues. Morning catch-ups over coffee, afterwork happy hour at the favorite waterhole or weekend drinks in town had mostly been replaced with coffees-to-go, virtual apéros, or alfresco drinking in winter like in summer. Consumers have become today their own baristas and bartenders, imbibing alone at home or at a distance outside. So how, and with what, will we quench our thirst? Here is EHL's selection of the top drink trends in 2022. In this pandemic-era, there is no doubt that the megatrends fo...
The Case Against QR Menus
Larry and Adam Mogelonsky | December 8, 2021
By Larry and Adam Mogelonsky Menus are an important aspect of the overall presentation of a hotel restaurant. Indeed, a whole book on proper menu design could be written, with inventory arrangements, fonts, graphics, spacing, types of paper, menu backings and all other stylistic concerns outlined as contributing factors for a guest’s overall appreciation of the dining outlet. The pandemic has thrown a wrench in this marketing and sentiment-boosting tool as many customers now expect menus to be accessible on their phones via a QR code. The benefit for the restaurant is certainly there in the form of saving on printing costs, but it’s...

Where Have All the Breadbaskets Gone?
Larry and Adam Mogelonsky | November 10, 2021
By Larry and Adam Mogelonsky Before the pandemic, it was quite customary in restaurants to whet the appetite with the tableside delivery of a breadbasket, or some variation of a small loaf of bread, as a welcome to the establishment. There has always been a positive symbolism with this act, as breaking bread not only increases meal satisfaction by alleviating any hunger pangs but also implies a deeper sense of trust and camaraderie. There’s more here on the psychological and monetary front. The bread serves as a timing delay tactic, giving the kitchen more time to prepare the selected appetizers and mains while simultaneously easing t...

This Is Why You Should Simplify F&B for 2022
Larry and Adam Mogelonsky | October 6, 2021
By Larry and Adam Mogelonsky As we enter budgeting season, let’s focus on the F&B department and why a minimalist approach will ultimately be profitable as guests continue to realign their shopping habits. The reason for this focus is that food is part of the overall hotel experience, with a good meal haloing based on a customer’s perception of the rooms product and influencing satisfaction as a result. One of our key mantras at Hotel Mogel has always been, “It’s better to do one thing great than a bunch only good.” Pandemic-related global F&B supply issues and inflationary forces aside, the bottom line is you want to ...
