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 crowds are flocking to at the moment.
In what's been a slow month for openings, not much in the way of changes. One demotion, with Bywater sandwich shop Jims getting cut, as Gracious Bakery makes its way onto the list for bringing awesome lunch fare and pastries to Jefferson Davis Parkway.
Been to any of these restaurants and had a great or a terrible experience? Let us know in the comments or by email.
