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.

San Francisco Top 25 Restaurants: November 2013

We’re pleased to announce our premier San Francisco edition of our monthly Foodable Top 25 list. It’s about time we showed some west coast love! In addition to our already existing Chicago, New York and Miami #Foodable25 rankings, we will be rolling out two more cities in December, so stay tuned!

Coming in at No. 1 is State Bird Provisions with a Social Score of 169.91, the highest social score we’ve seen throughout our entire #Foodable25 rankings so far by 29.41 points! Needless to say, the Bay Area’s foodie scene is thriving. Named Best New Restaurant of 2013, State Bird Provisions has received tons of acclaim from both local and national sources, including Bon Appetit and the New York Times, and we see why. Boasting high quality creative food, meaningful service and a personal touch on its social platforms, SBP is knocking it out of the Bay. In fact, according to an October 16th Facebook post, the restaurant became booked through the next 60 days. If that’s not consumer love, then we don’t know what is.

Unlike many other lists, these rankings are not hand-selected or editor-picked favorites. The organic data, pulled from our proprietary Restaurant Social Media Index (RSMI) measures consumer sentiment and restaurant influence based on a local consumer set tracked throughout 17 social platforms. (You can read a more extensive version of how the RSMI works here.) Don't see yourself on the list? Make sure you've submitted your brand here to be ranked.
