More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends, and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? What are the new restaurants? What haven't I heard of? What's everyone talking about? While the Eater 38 is a crucial resource covering old standbys and neighborhood essentials across the city, it is not a chronicle of the "it" places of the moment. Thus, we offer the Eater Heatmap, which will change periodically to highlight where the food-crazed crowds are flocking. Since this is a spotlight on what's happening right now, we must make room for what's fresh. Therefore, in this edition of the north-to-south guide we remove Das BBQ, The Halal Guys, Java Cats Cafe, and The Tavern at Atlas, and we welcome Barleygarden Kitchen & Craft Bar, Mediterranea, Petit Chou, and Talat Market.
