Eater 38 got updated today. This list is our answer to any question that begins with "Can you recommend a restaurant?" This group of eateries covers the entire city, spans over many cuisines, and collectively satisfies all of your restaurant needs. Every few months, we add pertinent restaurants that were omitted or have recently become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months). Older restaurants that have stepped up their game may be added back to the list. Very important: this list is presented in no particular order.
Without further ado, we made some changes. Basta, Wood Fire Eatery + Pizzeria, Carbone's, and the Squeaky Bean joined the list. With new additions, also come some subtractions: Hops & Pie, Pho Duy, and Olivea have left the ranks of essential restaurants.
The new additions and corresponding subtractions will make some people happy. But if your favorite restaurant is not here and you want to make your preference heard, please use the comments below to make your case, or send your thoughts in the tipline.
