Updating the Eater Heatmap: 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? What are the new restaurants? What haven't I heard of? What's everyone talking about? 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 Heatmap, which will change periodically to highlight where the food-crazed crowds are flocking. Since this is a spotlight on what's happening right now, we must bid adieu to places that have been around for too long. Therefore, in this edition, we must say goodbye to Seven Lamps and Monday Night Brewing and welcome BoccaLupo and Villains.

Suggestions? Vital omissions? Leave 'em in the comments or email the tipline.

BoccaLupo

Copy Link

BoccaLupo opened quietly in Inman Park in April, and early reviews have been nothing but positive. Go for the pasta, stay for the patio.

Villains Wicked Heroes

Copy Link

Wicked hero sandwiches have infiltrated Midtown in the form of Villains, now open at the corner of 8th and Peachtree streets. In addition to sandwiches, they've got "evil potion" cocktails, salads, and sides like ramen popcorn.

Paper Plane

Copy Link

Paper Plane opened behind Victory Sandwich Bar in Decatur a month ago and is already bringing in high praise for its strong cocktail list, created by Paul Calvert, and a menu of small(-ish) plates.

Chai Pani

The Decatur outpost of Chai Pani sells street food-style Indian fare in the old Watershed space on West Ponce. Check out the dahi puri, Indian-inspired drinks, and sandwiches like the vada pav or sloppy Jai.

KR SteakBar

Copy Link

The latest from Kevin Rathbun and his first outside of Inman Park, this restaurant offers small plated steaks and Italian fare from chef de cuisine Chris McDade as well as cocktails crafted by Tres Bullard, previously of Top Flr.

The Argosy opened in late February in East Atlanta from the guys behind Book House Pub and MJQ and has gotten pretty rave reviews since. It's hard to go wrong with a great beer list, a great space, and a great location. [Photo]

The General Muir

Copy Link

The latest from the West Egg team and chef Todd Ginsberg is full-service Jewish deli concept the General Muir. Located in Emory Point and open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch, the restaurant is pleasing patrons with everything from the poutine to the pastrami sandwich.
