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.
Leaving the map after impressive durations of hotness are Midway Pizza, The Irish House, and Merchant. Coming onto the map this month: Sobou, a Creole saloon in the French Quarter from the Commander's Palace team, and Serendipity, Chef Chris Debarr's new Bayou St. John restaurant.
Been to any of these restaurants and had a great or a terrible experience? Let us know in the comments or by email.Read More
