Restaurant obsessives want to know what's new, what's hot, which favorite chef just launched a sophomore effort, etc., and more often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? And 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" (ie, newest) places of the moment.
Thus, we offer the Eater HeatMap, which will change often to continually highlight where the food-focused crowds are flocking to at this very second. This time around, please welcome two spots in one! building! (that'd be Blue Star Donuts and Lardo, in the twelve | west building), a downtown lunch counter (Portland Penny Diner), and a new bar in the Mt. Tabor 'hood (The Tannery Bar).
