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 are saying goodbye to Ammazza, Bantam & Biddy, and La Tagliatella and adding the Argosy, Chai Pani, and KR SteakBar.

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

Atlanta, GA 30316
(404) 577-0407

The Argosy opened about a week ago 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]

4. The General Muir

Copy Link
1540 Avenue Pl NE Ste B-230
Atlanta, GA 30329
(678) 927-9131
Visit Website

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

5. Monday Night Brewing

Copy Link
670 Trabert Ave NW
Atlanta, GA 30318

Monday Night Brewing opened on the Westside in late January, offering tours, a pint glass, and four eight-ounce pours for ten dollars. The tasting room and patio are huge, and you can find bocce ball, four square, shuffleboard, and old movies in the space.

6. Seven Lamps

Copy Link
3400 Around Lenox Road
Atlanta, GA 30326
(404) 467-8950
Visit Website

Nestled into a corner in Buckhead's Shops Around Lenox, Seven Lamps is an intimate spot. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant offers everything from iced oysters on the half shell, sandwiches, and fresh pasta to innovative cocktails and sodas made in-house.

7. Gio's Chicken Amalfitano

Copy Link
1099 Hemphill Avenue
Atlanta, GA 30318
(404) 347-3874
Visit Website

Gio's Chicken Amalfitano can be found adjacent to Antico Pizza— it's owned by the same team. The restaurant has "shockingly good" chicken, but it's also worth a visit because the rest of the Piazza San Gennaro will be opening this spring and you may be able to get a sneak peek.
