New York City Top 25: September 2014

What were the most discussed NYC restaurants on social this month? The NYC list always features some of the highest social scores. Alder, a Top 25 veteran and the no. 2 restaurant this month, was a finalist this year for a RIZMY award

But our first placer is Perilla, who has been holding on strong in the top 5 for the last few months. But things got very interesting this month in Big Apple. Usually, the list is filled with familiar names. Not this month, though! We have five, yes five, new NYC restaurants. These newbies to the list are... Root & Bone at no. 6, élan at no. 8, URBO KITCHENS at no. 10, Decoy at no. 13, and lastly at no.16 with the intriguing restaurant name, Cork Buzz. It seems like it is going to be a busy fall for the NYC restaurant scene.
