It's the answer to the question: Where should I eat right now? The Eater Heatmap is a guide that reflects a mix of the buzziest restaurants, the places everyone's talking about, and places that are so new, you may not have heard about them yet.
While the Eater 38 is a resource that covers old standbys and neighborhood essentials across the city, it is not necessarily a chronicle of the "it" places of the moment. Thus, we offer the Eater Heatmap, which will change every month to continuously highlight where the food nerds are flocking to at the moment. This month, the ushering in of three fresh faces and a fond farewell to two spots that are officially established and ready to leave the nest:
IN: Ballard Annex Oyster House, Miyabi 45th, Rain Shadow Meats Squared.
OUT: Marination ma kai and Il Corvo.
