The term “underrated” is unavoidably loaded because, well, underrated according to who? Does it mean an unknown restaurant that should be widely known, or a fairly well-known place that should be getting more hype, or maybe a once-fashionable spot that shouldn’t be forgotten?
So here are the rules for this map: The restaurants here aren’t on many of our other maps and aren’t in any way “buzzy” or “hip.” We don’t get emails from PR teams about them because they probably don’t have PR teams. Often, they won’t have strong social media presences or frequently updated websites either. They are neighborhood places or industry hangouts, and in some cases we kind of regret telling you about them because we like how comfortable and uncrowded they are. But gatekeeping is silly, and you should know about these places. You’re welcome.
As usual, this map isn’t ranked but organized geographically. Know of a spot that should be on our radar? Send us a tip by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.Read More
