New York City Top 25 Restaurants: November 2013

Our New York City #Foodable25 rankings haven’t shifted much since we rolled out the city ranking in September. This shows us what we already expected of a solid food city like New York: consistency and loyalty amongst local consumers. There were, however, shifts throughout the usual contenders, as well as some new players in the game. Congratulations to Lafayette, American Cut, Betony, and Piora, who all made the list for the first time this month.

Alder jumped into the Top 10 (up from No. 22), as did Dirt Candy (up from No. 15). The Spotted Pig and Balthazar both fell into the second half of the list.

Topping the list for November is Locanda Verde, TriBeCa’s Italian taverna, with a Social Score of 142.73. Driven by Chef Andrew Carmellini, Locanda Verde’s menu includes items like Lamb Meatball Sliders, Pumpkin Agnolotti and Pomegranate-Glazed Duck, amongst other delectable dishes. The restaurant has received high praise from The New York Times, Esquire, GQ and Bon Appetit, yet remains casual and affordable, making it approachable while maintaining its high quality and value.

New York City Top 25 Restaurants: October 2013

New York City doesn't mess around when it comes to food. As the mothership of culinary cities in the U.S., it's easier to fail than to succeed in this dog-eat-dog market. The 25 restaurants below are not only bringing it, they're helping to redefine the landscape, and social consumers are noticing.

Marc Forgione is undoubtedly one of them. Climbing from No. 2 and taking the top spot from ABC Kitchen, Restaurant Marc Forgione hits on all the key components: impeccable dishes on a well-thought-out menu, innovative drinks, a cozy rustic meets urban loft atmosphere, and impressive service. On social, Forgione has more than 23K Twitter followers, more than 4K Facebook fans, and an Instagram account to salivate over.

Congratulations to all those who made the list, including some new additions for the month of October: The Modern and Alder.

Our #Foodable25 rankings aren't like most because they're not hand-selected – our proprietary Restaurant Social Media Index pulls data from social restaurant consumers from more than 17 social platforms to pinpoint who has the highest consumer sentiment and influence each month. (If you missed our NYC #Foodable25 list for September, you can check it out here.)

New York City Top 25 Restaurants: September 2013

ABC Kitchen

ABC Kitchen

Congratulations to those who ranked in our first Foodable Top 25 NYC list! Scoring one of the highest social scores we've yet to rank throughout all of our tracked cities in the Restaurant Social Media Index, ABC Kitchen tops the list. Tying together healthy, organic foods and a Michelin star Chef (Jean-Georges Vongerichten), ABC Kitchen's sensory style of food art merged with social are what makes good restaurants great

This list shows which restaurants in the New York City market have the most consumer sentiment and influence through social platforms. Each month, we'll report back with the most recent rankings, which are derived from the Restaurant Social Media Index. Some will rise, some will fall, and some new competition is sure to climb through. 

The Index tracks the top restaurant consumers in the U.S. - more than 52 million of them - across 17 platforms to determine key elements about restaurants, like consumer sentiment and influence. The Foodable Top 25 is the most unique restaurant ranking in the business, and the reason is simple: It's not a PR-driven popularity contest or an editorial 'My Favorite Picks' list. It's the real deal. The Foodable Top 25 is more realistic because it's tracked by the RSMI. A Foodable Top 25 Best Score is a 200, but getting that is damn near impossible. But like any great, competitive-driven restaurant, we know you will try.

So, without further ado, we present our first-ever Foodable Top 25 for the Big Apple. Bon Appetit!
