Updating the Eater Heatmap: 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'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 always highlight where the foodie crowds are flocking to at the moment. New to the map this time around: Marcie Turney's Little Nonna's opened yesterday (and you know it's going to be packed for the next 2 years), the South Street outpost of Lil' Pop Shop, and the much bigger and more awesome Artisan Boulanger Patissier.

Have any suggestions? Any vital omissions? Leave 'em in the comments or send 'em down the tipline.

1234 Locust St
Philadelphia, PA 19107
(215) 546-2100
Marcie Turney and Val Safran's Little Nonna's is finally open and ready to put some meat on those bones. An ode to Italian grandmother food, this place is going to be a huge hit.

2. Artisan Boulanger Patissier

Copy Link
1218 Mifflin St.
Philadelphia, PA
Artisan Boulanger just opened up the doors at their new location, and it's fantastic. They've added more prepared foods (sushi, anyone?)and a bunch of new pastries (yes, that means cronuts)to the menu.

3. Lil' Pop Shop

Copy Link
534 S. 4th St.
Philadelphia, PA 19147
Jeanne Chang cut the ribbon on her first expansion of the Lil Pop Shop brand on South St., and they're killing it. It's not just a new spot, they've added location-specific flavors, too.

4. Talula's Daily Market

Copy Link
208 W. Washington Square
Philadelphia, PA 19106
(215) 592-6555

6. Serpico

Copy Link
604 South St

7. Noord

Copy Link
1046 Tasker St
Philadelphia, PA
Joncarl Lachman's Noord has made a big splash on East Passyunk, and has become an instant classic. From herring sandwiches to rotisserie chicken and smoked fish, he's got Northern European cuisine covered.

IndeBlue just opened up on 13th Street, adding to the glut of new Center City restaurants that are making some noise. After killing it in in Jersey, they're hoping to repeat that success over the bridge.

Cheu Noodle Bar joined the ramen movement in Philly, and have added a host of other noodle dishes from around the globe. Tons of critical praise and blogger buzz has made this the spot for noodles in Philly.
