Miami Top 25 Restaurants: July 2014

What’s going on in Miami this month?

Sentiment from local South Florida super foodies that are tracked in our Restaurant Social Media Index seemed to be showing more love in July, putting Pubbelly at No. 1 for the first time with a high (for Miami, at least) Social Score of 155.33. Pubbelly shoots up 19 spots from last month’s rankings, and the Top 5 restaurants follow suit in terms of rising by a decent margin in the ranks. The Dutch jumps eight spots to No. 2, followed by Wynwood Kitchen & Bar (up 15 spots), Tongue & Cheek (up 12), and Lure Fishbar (up from No. 7). 

Last month’s Top 5 — including No. 1, DB Bistro Moderne — fall toward the bottom-half of the list. Also noting this month are new additions, including a few Broward restaurants. Welcome Canyon, Casa D’Angelo, and Market 17! Il Gabbiano and The District both jump back on the list.

Miami Top 25 Restaurants: June 2014

Only two restaurants in Miami — Area 31 and Swine — held in at the same ranking this month from our May Foodable Top 25 list. Michael’s Genuine, last month's top player, falls to No. 8, and is replaced by DB Bistro Moderne (up from No. 3) with a Social Score of 151.84. 

If you’re just signing on, our monthly Top 25 rankings are not hand-selected by us, but rather, by you — our Restaurant Social Media Index drills down into each city’s local audience or geo-located social actions, and ranks restaurant brands by consumer sentiment and influence across 17 social media platforms depending on what you’re saying on social about the brands. (Here's the full breakdown of How It Works.)

Making its premier on a Foodable 25 list are Dena Marino’s MC Kitchen, located in the Design District, and Matt Kuscher’s LoKal, known for its creative burgers and craft beer selection. Jumping back on the list are The Federal, Tongue & Cheek and Eating House.
