It's time to update 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. Every few months, we'll add pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months) or have stepped up their game. And keep in mind, this list is presented in no particular order.
For the fall 2014 update, Hot Doug's comes off the list after it (sadly) closed, while Balena and Pequod's are removed to make room for new blood. Neapolitan pizza institution Spacca Napoli, Sodikoff's sultry French-influenced steakhouse Bavette's Bar & Boeuf, and world-renowned Peruvian chef Gaston Acurio's Tanta come aboard.
For those of you readying the pitchforks because your favorite restaurant isn't on the list, wouldn't it just be more productive to nominate it for inclusion? State your cases for (or against) restaurants in the comments or in the tipline.Read More
