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's everyone talking about? 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 Heat Map, which will change continually to highlight where the crowds are flocking to, rightthisverymoment. New to the map this time around: the Tria Taproom, with its killer draft system and menu that reaches beyond any Tria before it, and a couple of great new French spots: Pierre and Charlotte Calmels' gorgeous Le Cheri at the Art Alliance, and the lively Good King Tavern, which set up shop where Chick's used to be with Paul Lyons in the kitchen.
UPDATED to add Nicholas Elmi's Laurel, which was such a shoo-in that your editor somehow neglected to realize it was not already on the list. (Trivia tidbit: Laurel opened just two days before our November update, making it technically eligible last month.)
Have any suggestions? Any vital omissions? Leave 'em in the comments or send 'em down the tipline.
