More often than not, tipsters, readers, and 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, and where to get the latest seafood tower or poutine or loco moco.
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 is updated monthly to always highlight where the crowds are flocking at the moment, focusing on restaurants that have been open for under six months.
The December 2017 update includes the addition of Citrus & Salt in Back Bay, Smoke Shop in Fort Point, and Fat Baby in South Boston. To see what used to be on the map, visit the archive.
Please note that the map items are ordered geographically from north to south; they are not ranked.Read More
