Here, now, the newly updated 2010 version of 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 month or so, we'll be adding pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible, or have stepped up their game. We'll also drop those that are no longer deemed 38-worthy. The only serious rule of engagement here is that a restaurant must be open at least six months to qualify for inclusion on the list, though strong consideration is given to neighborhood favorites over fancier destination spots.
After reading the comments on the most recent list, poring over the emails sent to to the tipline, and tuning in to various back channels, we're dropping Little Giant, Nougatine, and Co. and adding Prune, Marea, and Aldea.
Think there's a vital omission? Or a spot that shouldn't be here? Nominate your favorite restaurant in the comments or here.Read More
