New York City Top 25 Restaurants: August 2015

ABC Kitchen was the first restaurant to claim No. 1 status on Foodable’s premier Top 25 Restaurants in New York City list back in September 2013. Since then, the Jean-Georges restaurant has seen many places on (and off) the list. But this month, it’s back on top, after having been off the list since May, where it ranked No. 18.

So, what’s happened in the ABC Kitchen space in August that could have shifted to consumers being more proactive about their positive sentiment for the farm-to-table establishment? While there’s no one thing that’s certain, ABC Kitchen has gotten some great press within the past few months from publications like O, The Oprah Magazine to Architectural Digest.

Last month’s No. 1, Marc Forgione, drops a few spots to No. 4, and we welcome quite a few restaurants back on the list.
