It's time to update the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, “Can you recommend a restaurant?” This highly elite 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. 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 we're making a few changes — and, in two cases, our hand has been forced. We're going to give Evening Star Café's recent revamp a little more time to settle before reconsidering it for the list and, meanwhile, Bar Pilar is still closed for its renovations. Fortunately, newly eligible Graffiato and Fiola are taking their places.
And the 38 bids farewell to Belga Cafe and The Passenger in order to show Bethesda a little more love with the addition of Newton's Table. And Et Voila just keeps getting better, meriting it a spot. All of these changes are reflected in totally random order here.
And, just in case, rather than a stage-4 meltdown over our having excluded your favorite restaurant from the list, wouldn't it be more productive to just nominate it for inclusion?
