Just when you thought we'd reached peak avocado, restaurants centered around the insanely popular produce are now a thing. At Avocaderia, the self-proclaimed "world's first avocado bar," in Brooklyn, aficionados will find avocados spotlighted in salads, bowls, and smoothies.

London's Covent Garden is home to Avobar, a California inspired newcomer that serves dishes like avo hotcakes, green shakshuka, and chocolate bars made with the green stuff.

The originator of the trend is likely the Avocado Show, an Amsterdam café that launched last year and is now gearing up to go global.

"Our first expansion will be in Europe," says the Avocado Show cofounder Ron Simpson. "But we're aiming for Los Angeles as well." 

When the concept comes stateside, expect Insta-ready plates like avo-poke bowls and berry-avocado waffles. "People want healthy, beautiful dishes," says Simpson. "The avocado can offer that."
