It's time to update the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?" This group covers the entire city, spans myriad cuisines and collectively satisfies all of your restaurant needs, save for those occasions when you absolutely must spend half a paycheck (with one arguable exception). Every couple of months, we'll be adding pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months), or have stepped up their game.
This time around, the 38 bids a fond farewell to Kisaku, Blackboard Bistro and Thai Palms — not because they aren't great spots, but simply because time marches on. Also dropping off the list is Nettletown, in the wake of its surprise shuttering in August.
That's the bad news. The good: A lineup of new arrivals based on nominations, kitchen shuffles and other assorted intel. Eater would like to welcome Lecosho, Poppy, Brave Horse Tavern, and Vienthong to the list. All of these changes are reflected in random order here.
For those of you readying the pitchforks because your favorite restaurant isn't on the list, wouldn't it just be more productive to nominate it for inclusion? State your cases for (or against) restaurants in the comments or hit up the tipline.Read More
