New York City Top 25 Restaurants: February 2016

For the first time in months, new restaurants are jumping on New York City’s Top 25 Restaurants list. And not just one or two, but nine. Nine! And one of them is stealing the No. 1 spot from Tutto Il Giorno, which falls to No. 3. Momofuku Nishi, Dave Chang’s newest restaurant under the Momofuku empire, is holding it down with a solid Social Score of 181.49. The No. 2 spot, not exactly new to the city but new to the Top 25 ranking, is Danny Meyer’s Marta, a pizza restaurant helmed by Chef Nick Anderer.

This month in New York, we also welcome Eataly pop-up, Baita; Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette’s Toro; Tilda All Day; Santina; Pig & Khao; Amali; and Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich’s first new place in nearly a decade, La Sirena.
