The Manhattan Heatmap: Where to Eat Right Now

View as Map

134111232008_10_hasmaps%20%283%29%20%281%29.jpgMore 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, what Michael White is up to these days. 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 foodie crowds are flocking to at the moment.
Check out the map of Manhattan's 20 hottest restaurants below, and stay tuned for the Brooklyn and Queens maps later this week.
