Boston Top 25 Restaurants: June 2016

Get your silverware ready, Boston. The June 2016 Top 25 is bringing you the best of the best, newcomers, and some old favorites. The top three for this month seem to be sitting on a merry-go-round, circling and taking turns as they rotate through the rankings. This time, however, it was Puritan & Company that won with a score of 180.23. Loyal Nine came in a hairbreadth away at No.2 with a score of 179.34, followed by Giulia with a score of 178.68 at No. 3.

Congratulations to Highball Lounge, a retro bar with upscale eats and vintage games, for debuting into the Boston Top 25. This restaurant sits at No.24 with a score of 168.67.

We also have to give a big hand to Alden & Harlow. While they may have landed at No. 5, it's quite impressive that this subterranean, New American restaurant jumped 11 spots from its former No. 16 placement. Speaking of a major comeback, let's welcome back a few restaurants who've finally returned to the Top 25 after being away since December 2015: No. 21 Erblauce, No. 22 Row 34, and No.23 The Gallows. And a special shoutout to jmCurley at No. 25 for making it back onto the rankings after last appearing in September 2015. Will this brand continue to move up?
