Denver Top 25 Restaurants: May 2015

Acorn and Work & Class have been flip-flopping in the No. 1 spot since November. And just like clockwork, Work & Class, with a Social Score of 178.34 — the highest we’ve seen in Denver thus far — takes back its top ranking, putting Acorn at No. 2. Although Acorn isn’t No. 1, it’s Social Score — 177.36 — is the highest it’s ever been for that restaurant, which shows us that diners’ value perception of Denver’s Top 25 restaurants is increasing.

Also rounding out the Top 5 are Fruition Restaurant, Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen, and OAK at fourteenth, respectively. New to the Top 25, we welcome Bistro Barbès, Linger and Guard and Grace. And making its way on this month — for the first time since October — is Fuel Cafe.
