The summer weather isn't the only thing heating up. The competition in this month's D.C. Top 25 is as tough as ever, seeing as no new restaurants were able to make their way onto the board.
A new champion, Graffiato, has risen to the challenge, jumping from its former No. 9 spot in June to the leader of the pack with a score of 173.62. It's no surprise that the city fell in love with its high-energy, Italian flair, as well as its inventive twists on comfort food. Iron Gate, which was No. 1 last month, fell to No. 6 with a Social Score of 172.11.
The rankings for July have certainly jumbled, many restaurants from the top half bumping to the bottom half and vice-versa, but Rural Society continues to hang on by a thread, rounding off at No. 25 for the second time in a row. Check out the whole list below!
