Welcome to the Eater 38, the answer to any question that begins, “Can you recommend a restaurant?” While the Eater Heatmap covers the newest and hottest eateries, this specially selected group covers much of the city, spans myriad cuisines, and aims to collectively satisfy all of your restaurant needs. Every couple of months, Eater adds pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months), or have stepped up their game.
