Seattle Top 25 Restaurants: May 2015

Last month’s Top 25 saw several Seattle newcomers added to the list. This month, however, only one new restaurant made it to the top – Ba Bar, a Vietnamese street food joint run by the same folks responsible for Monsoon. Known best for its lighthearted fare and handcrafted cocktails, Ba Bar entered the Top 25 list incredibly strong, starting off at No. 8. 

Amongst the Seattle 25 veterans, Mamnoon, the modern Middle Eastern eatery, dropped slightly from No. 1 to No. 4, swapping places with local Italian favorite Altura, which grabbed the top spot. Joule also jumped up the list, finally snagging a spot in the Top 5. 

[Editor's Note: Kaisho, which made the list at No. 10, may have recently closed its doors, but it's evident that consumers are still speaking fondly of the restaurant on social, which is why its Social Score ranked so highly, thus making this month's list.]
