In our now six months of tracking New York City’s social consumer sentiment toward local restaurants, we’ve seen quite a few shifts from month to month. The data from February has been crunched, putting WD-50 with a Social Score of 158.64 in the No. 1 spot for the first time. A Wylie Dufresne concept, WD-50’s focus is New American cuisine, hosts private dining in its wine cellar, and currently offers two tasting menus. Aside from having a James Beard Award-winning chef, WD-50 is known for its culinary innovation – in both technique and structure.
Perilla, January’s No. 1 holder, drops all the way to No. 13, Marc Forgione remains in Top 5 status, and Momofuku climbs from No. 13 to No. 6. Also making significant shifts, for better or worse, are Betony, Locanda Verde and Per Se.
Congrats to Saxon + Parole, who made #Foodable25 for the first time this month (at No. 2, no less!), and those who jumped back onto the list this month: DB Bistro Moderne, The Stanton Social and Boulud Sud.
