There’s no doubt that the travel and hospitality industry has been changed by social media. The lure of a great Instagram photo has become a motivating factor for many people to go exploring, and once shared it becomes a marketing tool for the location. Here are some of the top instagrammed restaurants in the U.S…which are almost all in New York.
1. Sugar Factory, New York City, New York
The Sugar Factory is located in the Meatpacking district and draws people in with their over the top fishbowl drinks.
2. Nobu, Malibu, California
The Nobu location in Malibu is absolutely stunning. It’s located right on the water, with ocean views from every area of the restaurant. It also serves flawless and minimal sushi dishes that come picture perfect.
3. Tao Downtown, New York City, New York
The Tao downtown is 22,000 square feet in size, and with art like giant statues and geisha graffiti the walls are more popular on social media than the food.
4. Katz Delicatasin, New York City, New York
New York’s Lower East Side deli is a classic that’s been popular for years, even before it got around the world visibility in When Harry Met Sally.
5. Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, New York City, New York
Black tap serves extreme milkshakes that people wait in line for. Think cotton candy milkshakes and cookie milkshakes that are topped with entire cookies.
