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 city, 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 foodie crowds are flocking to at the moment.
After impressive durations of hotness, Mid City duo Serendipity and Gracious Bakery, both depart to make way for psychedelic banh mi superstars Ba Chi Canteen and Lucky Rooster, both coming onto the map this month.
