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.
Ah February, post-Dine Out, those who shun the annual prix-fixe free-for-all are to be found reclaiming all their old haunts. Servers are smiling again, bartenders making more than hot water and lemon. It's a good time to be out and about in the city. This month it's all about carbs and coffee - cos, hey baby, it's cold out there. Meet the new heat-makers.
IN: Bestie, Temper Pastry, Greenhorn
OUT: Mosaic, Rise and Shine Ice Cream, Craft Beer Market
