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: Wursthaus Schmitz, Bufad, and the comeback of the Lomabrdi clan with Gennaro's Tomato Pie in South Philly.

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

1710 Sansom St
Philadelphia, PA 19103

2370 E. Norris St
Philadelphia, PA 19125
(215) 423-5400
The lovely ladies of Cedar Point Bar & Kitchen have gotten solid early reviews, which has translated into full tables and a solid happy hour. Veggies have been talking up the Tempeh Reuben as an early favorite on the menu.

4. Pizzeria Beddia

Copy Link
115 E Girard Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19125
Joe Beddia's shiny new pizza shop, Pizzeria Beddia, is already a big hit. While he only makes a limited number of pizzas daily, the critics haven't reviewed him yet, which means you should get in before they're published.

5. The Dolphin Tavern

Copy Link
1539 S Broad St
Philadelphia, PA 19147
(215) 467-1752
The Dolphin was recently reborn, and the crowds have come back as if the place never closed. Avram Hornik has been on a roll with his recent successful re-do's, and The Dolphin is no different.

6. Cheu Noodle Bar

Copy Link
255 South 10th Street
Philadelphia, PA
They've only been open four days, but the crowds at Cheu Noodle Bar have been there from the moment the doors open at 4 p.m. until closing up shop at 11 p.m. And that's just during weekdays so far. It's going to get crazier.

7. Fitler Dining Room

Copy Link
2201 Spruce Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
(215) 732-3331
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.

8. Honey's Sit n' Eat on South

Copy Link
2101 South Street
Philadelphia, PA 19146
(215) 732-5130
After many years bringing happiness to the NoLibs crowd, and many hours of waiting in line for a counter seat, Honey's finally opened their 2nd outpost on South Street.

9. Gennaro's Tomato Pies

Copy Link
1429 Jackson St
Philadelphia, PA 19145
(215) 463-5070

Owned by former Lombardi's in NYC, the crew at Gennaro's has brought back classic pizza parlor vibe and a whole line of creative pizzas, including their "upside down" versions. But, order early and often, as they get pretty damn busy.
