Chicago Top 25 Restaurants: September 2014

The restaurant scene in Chicago this month is getting interesting, especially since last month was made up of entirely veterans and this month features 10 NEW restaurants appearing for the first time on the list. If you have been following Chicago's Top 25, the other 15 restaurants are familiar names. The no. 1 restaurant this month with the social score of 174.67 is The Bristol, a Top 25 veteran that moved up from no. 3 last month. We welcome back– both Tanta, no. 6 and Brindille, no. 14 to this September list, after a few month hiatus.

As for the newbies creating a ton of social chatter for the Chi Town restaurant scene– closely behind the top dog is 42 Grams at no. 2, making its debut on the list.  42 Grams is a fine dining restaurant that has adopted restaurant ticketing on their website. This means guests have to pre-purchase their meal and schedule their reservation online before coming in. Some of the other new names are Nico Osteria at no. 4, Kinmont at no. 5, The Radler at no. 7, The Winchester at no. 9, Mott St. at no. 10, Gogi at no. 15, Travelle at no. 18, A10 Hyde Park at no. 22, and Baffo holding on at no. 24. Welcome to the Foodable Top 25 September list!

Will these new-to-the list restaurants continue to created a social buzz to make it on next month's list? We will have to see.
