More 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, where Scott Harris just opened his latest venture. 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 Heat Map, which will change every few months to always highlight where the foodie crowds are flocking to at the moment.
1/7/11: Added: Maude's, Leopold, The Florentine, Grahamwich, Owen & Engine
