Restaurant obsessives want to know what's new, what's hot, which favorite chef just launched a sophomore effort, etc., and more often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? What is the "it" (ie, newest) place of the moment?
Thus, we offer the Eater Heatmap, which will change often to continually highlight where the food-focused crowds are flocking to at this very second. This time around, the Heatmap is almost entirely new, with a record seven new spots: Hola Arepa, The Copper Hen Cakery & Kitchen, Lago Taco, Agra Culture Kitchen & Press, Hot Indian Foods, the newly renovated Birchwood, and the new location of Corner Table.
Did we miss your personal favorite hot, new restaurant? By all means, let us know in the comments or email the tipline.
