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: the Aimee Olexy-backed Washington Square expansion, Talula's Daily, David Fields' new watering hole, a. bar, and Adam Ritter's bakery/pizza joint, Kermit's Bake Shoppe.

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

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Talula's Daily Market

Copy Link
208 W. Washington Square
Philadelphia, PA 19106
(215) 592-6555
The latest from Aimee Olexy is kicking ass early on, and it's only going to get better. They're launching dinner service on 8/13, and hope to be the affordable Talula's Table.

2. Kermit's Bake Shoppe

Copy Link
2204 Washington Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19146
They've only been open about a week, but there's been nothing but fantastic reports on quality of goods and pricing. Looks like Adam Ritter has yet another hit on his hands.

3. Serpico

Copy Link
604 South St
Philadelphia, PA 19147
After a very long wait, Serpico opened to great fanfare and has been an almost impossible reservation. Early reports have been excellent, and it has taken the crown as Philly's most beautiful restaurant.

4. 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.

5. a.bar

Copy Link
135 South 18th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
David Fields' a.bar might not have Bryan Sikora, but it has amazing wine, and destination-worthy small plates all the same. Being on the corner of Rittenhouse Square doesn't hurt too much, either.

6. Fitler Dining Room

Copy Link
2201 Spruce Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
The new project from the Pub & Kitchen crew is warm and friendly, and the food chef Robert Marzinsky is turning out is pitch perfect. The definition of an every day restaurant.

7. Indeblue

Copy Link
205 S. 13th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19107
(215) 545-4633

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.

8. Cheu Noodle Bar

Copy Link
255 South 10th Street
Philadelphia, PA
(267) 639-4136
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.

9. Tiffin Bistro

Copy Link
1100 Federal Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147
(215) 468-0104
Munish Narula's latest eatery brings his popular Indian cuisine to South Philly, and it's finally here. Expect a level of quality between his Tiffin mini-chain and swanky high-end Tashan on South Broad.
