New York City Top 25 Restaurants: July 2014

Thomas Keller’s Per Se makes it to No. 1 for the first time on this month’s Foodable Top 25 NYC Restaurant rankings with a Social Score of 171.83. This is the highest Score we’ve seen in the NYC market so far. Opened in 2004, Per Se is located on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle, and offers New American and French cuisine. The kitchen is helmed by Chef Eli Kaimeh.

Last month’s frontrunner, The Modern, drops to No. 5, with ABC Kitchen swooping into the No. 2 spot. Alder makes a significant jump to No. 3 (up from No. 16), with Perilla placing No. 4 (up from No. 21). Momofuku Noodle Bar and Bar Boulud both take a plunge from No. 3 and No. 4 last month to No. 17 and No. 19, respectively, for July. Eataly and Balthazar both hop back on the list this month, and we welcome Peasant and The Cecil (Harlem) to the Top 25 for the first time.
