The Eater Chicago Heat Map: Where to Eat Right Now

View as Map

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. 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 (also see the Brunch Heat Map and the Cocktail Heat Map). Thus, we offer the Eater Heat Map, which will change on a regular basis to always highlight where the foodie crowds are flocking to at the moment.
