Chicago Top 25 Restaurants: February 2014

Since the first installation of our Chicago Foodable Top 25 rankings, not one restaurant has been able to hold the No. 1 spot for more than a month, and February data proves to be no different. Grace, which reigned on top for January, has taken quite a tumble to No. 11 this month. Coming in at No. 1 this month is Next (formerly No. 8) with a 150.98 Social Score, the highest score for Chicago to-date. The Bristol still holds on at No. 3 and BellyQ is still sitting pretty at No. 5, but Sumi Robata and Two Restaurant, both of which were Top 5 holders last month, fall to No. 13 and No. 12, respectively, and are replaced by Little Goat Diner and Au Cheval.

Alinea climbs from No. 23 to No. 7 and Earth + Ocean climb from No. 24 to No. 9. Congrats to those making Foodable 25 for the first time: Puebla, Siena Tavern and Nico Osteria. Also, jumping back on the list are Au Cheval, Vera and Chez Moi. Check out the full list below!
