Updating The Eater Boston Heatmap, April 2014

View as Map

More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right freaking now? Restaurant obsessives want to know what's new, what's hot, where to get the latest Neapolitan pizza or smoked clam chowder. 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 continually to always highlight where the crowds are flocking to at the moment. Please note that the numbers are geographic; they are not rankings.
