This is our premier Foodable Top 25 list for Chicago, a city that foodies are naturally drawn to for its rich flavor and its who's who of emerging chefs. Ranking in the top spot for October 2013 is The Bristol - importantly noted as having the top Social Score of any other restaurant since the beginning of our city-level #Foodable25 rankings.
The Bristol, which received a spot on GQ's "Ten Best New Restaurants in America" list in 2010, is an American restaurant with all the right fixings for social dining stardom: the menu boasts handmade pasta, farm-fresh produce, and takes a nose-to-tail approach to cooking. Top that with an active social presence, tons of Instagram food porn, and a crowd of locals and off-duty chefs, and you've got yourself a true Chicagoan foodie experience. Congratulations to all 25 restaurants that made the list, a ranking that isn't handpicked, but is all data-driven based on our proprietary Restaurant Social Media Index. The below list is based on consumer sentiment tracked from 17+ social platforms, as well as influence. Don't see your restaurant on the list?
