The conversation about food and restaurants is always happening on Twitter, and according to social media there are more than 100M tweets a month globally about food. People love to share what they eat, especially the fashion industry. Food is also the eighth most-searched-for topic when new users create Twitter accounts and search for topics to follow (“food”).

With a vast variety of restaurants in New York City popping up monthly, the Big Apple is a mecca for foodies, and one of the best places to stunt on social media while you chow down. To celebrate the food culture in NYC, Twitter has compiled a few lists of interesting dining stats for 2017.

We all know that New Yorkers love their food delivery and coffee just as much as they love dining out, so Twitter shared the trends in the conversation about food delivery and coffee habits in NY:
