New York City Top 25 Restaurants: December 2015

Since Tutto Il Giorno joined Foodable’s Top 25 Restaurants in New York City back in April, it has consistently placed in the Top 5 each month. But it’s never made it to the No. 1 spot — until now. With a score of 181.49, the Italian restaurant takes it to the top. 

NYC’s Tutto Il Giorno, located on Franklin Street in Manhattan’s TriBeCa neighborhood, is a branch of the Hamptons-based restaurant, which highlights contemporary Italian cuisine from Naples. The extensive menu includes dishes like troccoli (whole grain pasta, porcini, chestnuts, and rosemary); tortelli (squash with lamb ragu, almonds, toasted pumpkin seeds); branzino (poached in a tomato, celery and olive oil broth, spinach); and vitello (roasted natural veal chop, Yukon gold potatoes, cherry tomato, tropea red onion).

Also making this month’s Top 5 are ABC Kitchen, Marc Forgione, Eataly, and Peasant. And while there are no new restaurants joining the rankings for December’s list, four of last month’s have been replaced with restaurants coming back onto the list for the first time in months.

New York City Top 25 Restaurants: October 2015

Not surprisingly, Marc Forgione makes his way back to No. 1 for this month’s Foodable Top 25 ranking in New York City. This month, as with all other months, we pull unstructured data from our Restaurant Social Media Index from the full month prior to determine accurate sentiment, influence, and engagement in regards to these restaurants by NYC locals.

Catch, Cosme, and Tutto Il Giorno all remain steady in the Top 5 at No. 2, No. 3, and No. 5, respectively, and last month’s frontrunner, ABC Kitchen, drops to No. 4. 

The biggest movers this month — for better or worse — are the Arlington Club, Momofuku Noodle Bar, and Eataly, and four restaurants from last month’s list fall off completely, replaced by establishments making a reappearance in the ranking for the first time in months, a couple for the first time since 2014.
