Washington D.C. Top 25 Restaurants: August 2014

This month's Top 25 Restaurants of D.C. list consists of all veterans– meaning every restaurant on the list has been ranked in the previous month. Even the four new restaurants from last month, Sona Creamery and Wine Bar, Rural Society, Menu MBK, and Toro Toro have returned this month. 

The no. 1 ranked restaurant this August is Blue Duck Tavern with the social score of 176.09. Last month's victor, Proof has moved half way down the list to no. 15. Similarly, Iron Gate dropped from the top four to being no. 22. There were some climbs though, such as Toki Underground from no. 18 to moving into the top five this month. 

There were four restaurants that stayed in the same rank, including Estadio at no. 3, Plume at no. 23, VOLT at no. 24, and Bourbon Steak at no. 25.
