2 New York City-Based Restaurants Land On Yelp Top 100 List Of America’s Most Popular Places To Eat For 2015

Los Tacos No. 1 – New York

And it’s no surprise, two New York City-based restaurants have landed on Yelp’s top 100 list of the best places to eat in the United States in 2015. The surprise, really, is that more didn’t.

It’s time you went and found them.

The truth is, being New York, the only challenge is finding a seat to enjoy it. Happy Eating!

Los Tacos No.1, the city’s best new taco spot and The Cinnamon Snail, a food truck on Chelsea, Midtown West, came in at number 78 and 97, respectively.

According to its blog, the restaurants were chosen based on more recent reviews, so that users’ opinions in 2014 mattered more than older reviews.
