More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? Restaurant obsessives want to know what's new, what's hot, which favorite chef just launched a sophomore effort, where to sip the cocktail of the moment. And 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 often to continually highlight where the foodie crowds are flocking to at the moment.
This month, Menu MBK, Joe's Seafood and Republic make way for three newcomers: America Eats Tavern (the latest from Jose José Andrés), Crane & Turtle (a Japanese and French restaurant in Petworth) and Tico (Michael Schlow's first D.C. venture).
