Welcome to the August Eater Detroit Heatmap. Some of the most anticipated restaurants opened at last, earning spots on this last Heatmap of summer in the nick of time. Unlike that more stable of standbys, the Eater 38, the Heatmap aims to be more current as it catches wind of the newest, most popular places to eat and drink each month. The August map features mostly new spots, with a few more established restaurants who changed or added to the menu (booze!) and one that is getting some serious national attention for their fish fry.
Did we miss your favorite new restaurant? Been somewhere else that feels worthy of high praise and popular approval? Drop us a note on our tipline or leave your thoughts below.
