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.
This second edition in 2014 of the Eater 38 brings adds an iconic pizzeria (Pequod's), a restaurant and dessert bar from a James Beard winner (Mindy's Hot Chocolate) and a Fulton Market Latin destination (La Sirena Clandestina). Big Star, Carriage House, and Lillie's Q exit only to make room for new blood.
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
