Food trends come and go. So how can you tell which tastes are trending right now?
We used Yelp and SafeGraph, a dataset of commercial attractions and visitor patterns, to data-drive the question to determine which restaurants saw significant increases in attention this month.
To find out who made the list, we first looked at the San Francisco businesses by category on Yelp and counted how many reviews they received. Instead of just comparing them based on the number of reviews, we calculated a percentage increase in reviews over the past month and tracked companies that have continuously increased their review volume to identify statistically significant outliers compared to past performance. We then analyzed SafeGraph’s pedestrian traffic data to validate the trends.
Read on to see which spots are hot right now.
