New York City Top 25 Restaurants: January 2015

Making the New York City Top 25 Restaurants list is not an easy thing to do. The list often features the same set of top dogs. With that being said- no new restaurants have broken into the list this month. 

Last month's victor returns at the coveted No. 1 rank, Alder with the high social score of 181.04. At No. 2 is Catch, a restaurant that returns strong after a brief hiatus off the list for the last few months. Rounding out the top three is Marc Forgione, inching from No. 5 last month.

Even though the list is made up of veterans, only one out of the five new restaurants from last month have returned. The Mexican restaurant known for their share plates featuring local ingredients and tequila and mezcal cocktails, Cosme returns this January with a slight drop in rank from No. 13 to 17.
