New York City Top 25 Restaurants: June 2014

MoMA’s The Modern climbs its way to the No. 1 spot in June (up from No. 4) for the first time, pushing Wylie Dufresne’s WD-50 to No. 11. This is the first time since November 2013 that WD-50 has not been in the Top 10, and we can probably attribute the fall to the announcement (made earlier this month) of the restaurant closing at the end of November. Eleven Madison Park holds on at No. 10, and Betony, Momofuku Noodle Bar, The Marrow, and Lure Fishbar all shoot up to Top 10 status, making big jumps from May.

New to the rankings this month, we welcome Marea, Le Bernardin, Pearl & Ash, and The Dutch.

If you’re just signing on, our monthly Top 25 rankings are not hand-selected by us, but rather, by you — our Restaurant Social Media Index drills down into each city’s local audience or geo-located social actions, and ranks restaurant brands by consumer sentiment and influence across 17 social media platforms depending on what you’re saying on social about the brands. (Here's the full breakdown of How It Works.)
