The New Orleans Heat Map: Where to Eat Right Now

View as Map

More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? What are the new restaurants? What haven't I heard of? What's everyone talking about? To answer those questions, we present the second edition of our Eater Heat Map. The list below is predominantly casual, in keeping with the pizza- and burger-heavy recent openings, though Ste. Marie, opened this past spring, maintains its place on the map. For now.

Additions to the latest Heat Map are The Midway for a Chicago-style alternative to nearby Ancora, and Merchant, the new café in the CBD.

Have any suggestions? Any vital omissions? Leave 'em in the comments. Or email!
