It's already time for the February Heatmap, but this isn't "romantic Valentine's Day spots", this is the list of the places people just keep talking about. 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, and the February map has both some new just open (or just opening) places, and some older restaurants with a new spring in their step.
The February map features Topsoil (the new cafe inside of the MOCAD), Corktown's Green Dot Stables (they've been in the national news), and Marais in Grosse Pointe (they're bringing their brunch game). Other places are holding spots on the list or showing up for the first time because they've got some new tricks (The Rattlesnake Club is one example).
Had a less-than happy experience at one of these places? Been somewhere else that feels worthy of high praise and popular approval? Drop us a note on our tipline or leave your thoughts below. We know you will.
