Denver Top 25 Restaurants: September 2015

It’s common for a Top 25 city ranking list to see new restaurants jumping on and existing ones falling off each month. But this month in Denver, things are looking fairly steady. Every restaurant that was listed last month made the list again this month, based on September RSMI data. 

Still, exciting things are happening. For the first time on a Foodable Top 25 list, Beast + Bottle takes No. 1 with a Social Score of 176.11. Acorn, last month’s frontrunner, falls one spot, to No. 2, and Colt & Gray jumps into the Top 5, up from No. 15. There were a few other movers and shakers on the list this month, too.

Check out the full rankings below.
