They’re the BEST places to eat in NYC — according to Yelp


When you think New York City, you think about the sights, the culture and — of course — the food.

There are restaurants here considered the best in the world.

So when the good people of Yelp compiled their list of The Top 100 Places To Eat in the United States, you would think the Big Apple would dominate right?

Try again.

Only three local joints made the list. The highest rank was No. 65. So what gives?

“We used weighted data based on most popular businesses on the site last year to predict what we think are going to be the new up and comers, the hottest places to eat around the country in 2015,” Darnell Holloway, head of local business outreach at Yelp, told PIX11 News.

So in essence, the list is made by the people for the people, with a year’s worth of reviews calling the shots.

With all that considered the big question is: who made the cut when it came to restaurants here in New York City?

The Cinnamon Snail (variety NYC locations): If you’re vegan and have a sweet tooth, you’ve probably heard about the Cinnamon Snail.

It’s an all-organic and vegan food truck that sets up shop at a different location in the city every other day, serving up tasty treats that you don’t have to feel bad about after eating.

From baked goods to sandwiches, nearly every Yelp review sings their praises.

Los Tacos No. 1 (Chelsea): While it came in at #78 on Yelp’s list, Los Tacos No. 1 takes the top spot when it comes to authentic Mexican.

Calling the Chelsea market building home, Its menu is built on family recipes where it takes the traditional taco to a whole new level.

Sal, Kris & Charlie’s Deli (Astoria): Taking the highest spot on the list is the sandwich king of Astoria – “Sal, Kris & Charlie’s Deli.” Classic. Fresh. Family owned.

Every day is truly a holiday here, according to Charlie Gordon.
