There are some heavyweight critics who don’t believe in these types of lists. For them, the dining out experience is too subjective and unquantifiable. Here at Gobbl, we’re inclined to disagree. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been applying our math and social science skills to produce a rather nerdy formula – one that accounts for the opinion of big time critics, the haters, the lovers, and nearly 500 diners. We’ve filtered almost 200 restaurants through this formula to produce our top fifty restaurants in New York City. As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas, but of course, we’re keeping our secret formula under a tight lid for now!
