More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater ask us: Where should I eat right now? What are the new restaurants? What haven't I heard of? What's everyone talking about? And while the Eater 38 is a crucial resource covering old standbys and neighborhood essentials across the greater New Orleans area, it is not a chronicle of the 'it' places of the moment.
Thus, we offer the Eater Heatmap, which will change continuously to always highlight where the hungry crowds are flocking to at the moment. These spots cover high-end and affordable dining for both lunch and dinner, with the occasional addition of important bakeries and breakfast spots.
Generally speaking, the restaurants on the heat map have been around for 6 months or less and all of them are serving up some cuisine that has the city buzzing. The restaurants are listed alphabetically in this map and are not ranked.
This month, the Heatmap says goodbye to Tavolino, an excellent pizza spot and lounge conveniently located across from the ferry landing in Old Algiers. The list sees the addition of Briquette and Two Sisters on the West Bank.
Without further adieu, here are the hottest new restaurants in New Orleans right now.
Been to any of these restaurants and had a great or terrible experience? Let us know in the comments or by email. Editor's note: The Heatmap is arranged alphabetically, never by ranking or date of inclusion on the map.Read More
