It's that time once again: The Eater 38 has returned with a quarterly update. For the uninitiated, this is a map intended to help answer that age-old question, "Can you recommend a restaurant...?"
The latest incarnation of the 38 brings the additions of an undeniably Texan dining destination, a seafood staple and a fried chicken go-to. As always, we've covered the spectrum: From barbecue and burgers to Japanese and Tex-Mex, from casual lunch spots to date night destinations.
Ready to throw down the gauntlet because we omitted your favorite place? We're always up for lively discussion, so hit us up via the tipline or let us know in the comments. Perhaps we'll take your advice and include it on the next Eater 38 update. Remember: Restaurants must have been open for six months to qualify.
