If you've been puzzling over where you should eat out, Eater is back to answer that very question with our newest edition of the Heatmap—a guide to what's new, what's hot, and which restaurants are causing most buzz in Van City.
While the Eater 38 is a resource that covers old standbys and neighborhood essentials across the city, it is not necessarily a chronicle of the "it" places of the moment. Thus, in no particular order, we offer the Eater Heatmap, which will change every month to continuously highlight where the food nerds are flocking to at the moment.
Maybe we're trying to comfort ourselves post-Luuuuu's trade? Maybe we're just all about the basics right now? Whatever - this month all anyone is talking about is burgers. Whether it's the anonymous truck sort at Burger 2.85 or the dirty variety upstairs at Campagnolo; carb-y bread with a slab of beef is what is making our heart beat harder, faster and stronger this month. Meet the new heat-makers.
IN: Merchant's Oyster Bar, Burger 2.85, Upstairs at Campagnolo
OUT: Greenhorn, Temper Pastry, Dunlevy Snack Bar
