New York City Top 25 Restaurants: January 2014

Perilla, which has held steady in the Top 5 each month since we launched the New York City #Foodable 25 rankings in September, has climbed to No. 1 from No. 4 this month, flip-flopping with last month’s top runner, Marc Forgione. 

Arlington Club, Per Se, Kin Shop, and RedFarm all took hits this month, but still held on in the rankings. ABC Kitchen is back in the Top 10, jumping from No. 20 to No. 6. American Cut jumped back on the list this month, as did Lafayette and Balthazar.

A Harold Dieterle concept, Perilla is a small venue – 18 tables and 10 spots at the bar – in Greenwich Village that focuses on fresh, seasonal ingredients, each dish finely tuned with a precise balance of flavors and textures. At the end of the day, judging by social consumer sentiment, the equation of a notable chef, intimate venue, seasonal ingredients and active social media channels, make Perilla a memorable experience for consumers.
