Portland Top 25 Restaurants: September 2014

What restaurants are creating the social buzz in our newest Top 25 city, Portland? Every one of the restaurants that made their debut on the first Portland Top 25 last month have returned this month. The competition is fierce among these top 25s and there was a lot of movement on the list this month.

The no. 1 restaurant this month is the fine dining restaurant by the intriguing name of Beast, with the high social score of 178.93. Last month's victor, Le Pigeon dropped to no. 4 but the sister restaurant Little Bird Bistro move up from no. 12 to placing no. 3. Ataula remains in the top five this month and moves up to no. 2.
