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 and surrounding areas, 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, the 38 bids farewell to Palena, Kushi, Cashion's, Cava and Equinox, not because they're not great, but simply because time moves on. The 38 has also swapped Ethiopian restaurants, subbing Ethiopic in for Dukem. And Liam LaCivita's Liberty Tavern has replaced Lyon Hall for the moment. What's new? Zaytinya has returned to the list, and other additions include Bombay Club, Et Voila, Ren's Ramen and the newly eligible Mintwood Place. 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?
