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.

New York City Top 25 Restaurants: August 2015

ABC Kitchen was the first restaurant to claim No. 1 status on Foodable’s premier Top 25 Restaurants in New York City list back in September 2013. Since then, the Jean-Georges restaurant has seen many places on (and off) the list. But this month, it’s back on top, after having been off the list since May, where it ranked No. 18.

So, what’s happened in the ABC Kitchen space in August that could have shifted to consumers being more proactive about their positive sentiment for the farm-to-table establishment? While there’s no one thing that’s certain, ABC Kitchen has gotten some great press within the past few months from publications like O, The Oprah Magazine to Architectural Digest.

Last month’s No. 1, Marc Forgione, drops a few spots to No. 4, and we welcome quite a few restaurants back on the list.

New York City Top 25 Restaurants: July 2015

The Big Apple has boasted some big surprises for this month's Top 25.

For one, Alder, a New York City favorite that has consistently graced the Top 25 for months and months in a row, is closing with possible plans of relocation. It landed at No. 9 with a Social Score of 177.60. But in happier news, Marc Forgione has returned to No. 1 for the first time since April with a Social Score of 183.18.

Also this month, two familiar faces decided to pay a visit for the first time since 2014. Betony, which offers New American cuisine and creative cocktails, comes in at No. 15 with a Social Score of 174.17, and Dirt Candy, a restaurant that serves inventive vegetarian dishes, follows closely behind at No. 16 with a Social Score of 174.09. What could have inspired this resurrection?

New York City Top 25 Restaurants: June 2015

Foodable Labs’ June data shows some month over month movement from April to June, with Cosme stealing the top spot from Marc Forgione, which drops to No. 3 this month. This is not only Cosme’s debut at No. 1, but its first time in Top 5 territory. Catch sits pretty at No. 2, a spot it’s held since January.

Located in the Flatiron District and headed up by Chef Enrique Olvera, Cosme offers Mexican-inspired cuisine with a major focus on local, seasonal ingredients sourced from surrounding areas, including the Hudson Valley. And what’s great Mexican food without a complementary beverage program? Cosme’s drink menu is given just as much thought as its dishes, with best-in-class artisanal spirits.

Last month brought seven first-timer restaurants to the NYC Foodable Top 25 list. Six of them managed to stay on, with the exception of Navy. For June’s ranking, we welcome Meadowsweet, Gotham Bar and Grill, Church Street Tavern, and The Chester.
