Two of the restaurants on this list have unfortunately closed in the past year. We kept them on the list because A. as a show respect for the fallen businesses, and B. because they are still technically listed on the site’s top ten.

If we took out the two closed restaurants, Mandalay in Silver Spring and Gregorio’s Trattoria in Potomac would have made the list.
