Miami Top 25 Restaurants: January 2015

The Miami restaurant social scores have been on the raise and this month they are the highest they have ever been! Does this mean that the Miami culinary scene has upped the ante? 

The fine dining restaurant at the Turnberry Isle Hotel known for its contemporary and elegant fare of steaks and duck-fat fries, Bourbon Steak holds on strong at No. 1 again this January, with the high social score of 169.74! While, The Federal makes a climb to No. 2 from No. 5 and rounding out the top three is Prime Italian, which returns to the list after falling off in December.

No new restaurants have broken into the list this month. However, the new restaurants from last month return–Hakkasan drops from its strong December debut at No. 4 to No. 17 this month and Khong River House also drops from No. 10 to No. 21.

Some of the notable shifts include- Macchialina launching from No. 20 to rounding out the top five and Steak 954 climbing from holding on at No. 25 last month to ranking at No. 11.

San Francisco Top 25 Restaurants: February 2014

Hanging in the Top 3 since we launched San Francisco’s #Foodable25 is Bar Agricole, now at No. 1 for the first time. Meanwhile, January’s No. 1, Waterbar, slips to No. 4. Two restaurants – Epic Roasthouse and Bar Tartine – make a first appearance on a Foodable Top 25 ranking this month with impressive Top 10 spots. Hakkasan makes a notable jump from No. 25 to No. 10, and Coqueta and South at SFJAZZ both fall to the bottom of the list.

Congrats to Nopa and Boxing Room, both of which made #Foodable25 status for the first time. We welcome AQ and Cafe Terminus back onto the list after falling off last month.

Bar Agricole is an obvious top runner, as chosen by San Francisco diners on social based on data  pulled from the Restaurant Social Media Index (to get a better understanding of how restaurants are ranked, please click here.) Bar Agricole’s menu is composed of dishes with ingredients sourced from a group of organic, Biodynamic farms. Its bar program offers a bevy of freshly made cocktails, and its space is simple, clean-cut and refined, perhaps an ode to the main star: the food.
