New York City Top 25 Restaurants: November 2017

Welcome back! Ready to learn more about New York’s bustling dining scene? Well, you’ve come to the right place! The Big Apple has many newcomers making a big splash and  presenting themselves as a fierce competition to the veterans of the Top 25 list.

With that being said, there are a dozen new restaurants that made the November list for 2017. That’s right— 12 new restaurants. Seven of those new restaurants have made it into the coveted top ten spots.

Foodable welcomes Ferris celebrating at the No. 1 spot of the list with a score of 188.03. This New American restaurant is located at the Flatiron’s new Made Hotel and it’s kitchen is led by Chef Greg Proechel. The menu features a balance of rustic and refined preparations highlighting Proechel’s favorite ingredients of each season.

At No. 2 we have The Aviary’s NYC outpost with a score of 186.99. Debuting in New York for the first time, The Aviary is located at the top floor of the Mandarin Oriental overlooking Central Park. This progressive restaurant/cocktail bar aims to provide an interactive journey for guests, boasting small food plates and inventive, thoughtful cocktails. Needless to say, it’s a unique experience.

In third place, we have Le Coucou, another first timer on the Top 25 list, with a score of 186.31. This restaurant is located at the corner of Lafayette and Howard Street and it is led by the Chicago-native and internationally acclaimed chef Daniel Rose of Spring and La Bourse et La Vie in Paris. At Le Coucou, a Stephen Starr restaurant, you will experience chef’s personal take on French cuisine.

Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants: July 2014

Last month marked a shift for our Las Vegas Foodable Top 25 Restaurants list. While the rankings had been fairly consistent since January, June shook things up a bit with some major movers and even a couple of new players. While there are no restaurants making their premier debut this month, Gordon Ramsay Steak, Cut, and Kumi Japanese Restaurant + Bar all jump back onto the list from previous months. 

SW Steakhouse grabs onto the No. 1 spot for the second time since May 2014 (up from No. 9 last month), pushing Bartolotta Ristorante Di Mare down to the No. 4 spot for July. Also rounding out the Top 5 this month are barMasa (No. 2), Gordon Ramsay Steak (No. 3), and Honey Salt (No. 5).

Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants: June 2014

Things are changing up in Las Vegas this month! April’s No. 1, Bartolotta Ristorante Di Mare, slides back into the top spot, moving last month’s frontrunner, SW Steakhouse, to No. 9. barMasa holds tight in the Top 3, and Raku jumps back into Top 5 status. 

Making big moves this month — for better or worse — are Wolfgang Puck’s CUT, Jean Georges Steakhouse, Tao Asian Bistro, and Scarpetta. We welcome Emeril’s Table 10 to the list for the first time, as well as Botero, a Wynn concept. 

What’s interesting about this month’s rankings, aside from the fact that we’ve not seen this much shake-up on Vegas’s list since we kicked off in January 2014, is that, as a whole, Vegas’s Social Score reached an all-time low this month, dipping into the 170s after having held a 180 or higher in previous months.

Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants: May 2014

As we’ve stated before, the Las Vegas Foodable Top 25 ranking seems to be the most consistent — month over month — of all our cities. This month, it couldn’t be more true — with the exception of Martorano’s (No. 15 in April) moving up to No. 7, April’s No. 7 thru 25 have pretty much all kept in tune in terms of order. Most of the shifting took place in the top spots, with SW Steakhouse jumping from No. 6 to No. 1 for May. This is SW Steakhouse’s first time at No. 1 on the list. Last month’s No. 1, Bartolotta Ristorante Di Mare, falls to No. 5.

Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants: April 2014

Let’s cut right to the chase: Bartolotta Ristorante Di Mare is killing it this month in social influence and sentiment. Surging from No. 20 last month to No. 1, Bartolotta, located inside the Wynn, has a Social Score of 180.73, pushing barMasa to No. 2.

Surprisingly for Las Vegas, which has kept a fairly consistent ranking, there have been quite a few switch-ups this month.

Joining the list for the very first time are Wicked Spoon, Tao Asian Bistro, Scarpetta, and Martorano’s, pushing Gordon Ramsay Steak, CarneVino, Chada Thai & Wine, Sage, and Vintner Grill off the list.

Helmed by Chef Bartolotta, Bartolotta Ristorante Di Mare boasts fresh Mediterranean seafood and Italian cuisine, as well as indoor and outdoor dining options. The restaurant has received many accolades, including a “Best Restaurants in America” nod from The Daily Meal and is a 2014 Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Award winner.
