Detroit Top 25 Restaurants: October 2015

There’s no doubt that Detroit’s dining scene continues to flourish. While it may not get the same amount of coverage that other, bigger cities get, locals know it to be a culinary haven with emerging chefs, independently cool concepts, and a city that views partnerships over competition for the greater good of culinary minds meshing together.

This month, Wright & Company stays on top at No. 1 with a Social Score of 180.29. The list welcomes not one, not two, but three new restaurants in the Top 10 — Townhouse, La Dolce Vita, and a wine bar, Vertical Detroit.

Outside of the Top 10, four additional restaurants appear in the rankings for the first time, including La Dulce, Marais, Parks & Rec Diner, and Central Kitchen + Bar. Remember, Foodable’s Top 25 Rankings are based on unstructured data across 17 social media platforms and are determined by what locals are discussing in regards to these restaurants online. We track not only their conversations involving the brand, but contextual clues involving sentiment, influence, and engagement as the core factors of determining a brand’s social score.
