July Heatmap: Where to Eat Right Now

View as Map

Welcome to the newest Eater Detroit Heatmap. While most of June's high profile openings have been postponed, several new restaurants opened, with beer and tequila lovers getting some great new options in the mix. 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 July map features several new spots, and two restaurants who have chefs earning some serious national attention.

The map includes new beer havens Ale Mary's Beer Hall, the long-awaited Atwater in the Park, and Downtown's newest hangout TAQO Detroit.

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.

Michael Symon's beloved burger chain has made its way to Michigan, opening their first location in Rochester last month. They're getting great reviews from diners and critics alike, and are opening a second location in Royal Oak. [Photo]

Ale Mary's Beer Hall

This place takes their beer very, very seriously, and they're finally open after months of anticipation. It's not all beer though, homemade sausages of various types and other dishes mean there is plenty to soak up the booze. [Photo]
Chef Garrett has been named one of 16 Eater Young Guns, the most promising up and coming talent in the culinary industry. Eat at Torino now before the reservation list gets too long to handle. [Photo]

The Jagged Fork

Serving breakfast and lunch, the new Grosse Pointe restaurant has been receiving positive reviews for the homemade dishes, including brunch favorites and salads. Oh, and it's also supposed to be fairly affordable. [Photo]
Chef David Gilbert has been invited to cook the Bastille Day dinner at Beard House in NYC, an enormous honor cementing his place as a chef to watch in the French culinary tradition. His much-lauded restaurant Marais will surely gain more national attention following this success.[Photo]

The doors of this former church have reopened as a brewery, restaurant, and biergarten, and people just can't seem to get enough of their German fare, beer specials, and unique decor. [Photo]

TAQO Detroit

Authentic Mexican cuisine, locally sourced ingredients, and an outrageous number of tequilas (over 200) are a great draw, their location by the ball park means this new restaurant is positively buzzing. [Photo]
