Boston Top 25 Restaurants: June 2014

June marks the debut of Boston’s Foodable Top 25 Restaurants. Coming in at No. 1 with a Social Score of 167.39 is Union Square’s Bronwyn, which features hand-crafted sausages, schnitzels, and other German fare, while also pulling inspiration from Central and Eastern Europe. Named after Chef Tim Wiechmann’s wife, Bronwyn’s interior evokes the spirit of a rustic European tavern/bistro with eclectic pieces thrown in the mix from the Chef’s own travels. The restaurant was recently dubbed as having one of “America’s Best Hot Dogs” by Travel + Leisure for its “Brondog” (melted Emmentaler cheese and vinegary sauerbraten on a poppy seed potato bun). 

Rounding out the Top 5 are Rendezvous in Central Square, Journeyman, Eastern Standard, and Bibim, respectively.

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.)
