To ring in November, here, now, the newly updated version of the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, “Can you recommend a restaurant?” This highly elite group covers the entire city, spans myriad cuisines and, collectively, satisfies all of your restaurant needs, save for those occasions when you absolutely must spend half a paycheck. Every month or so, we'll be adding pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible, or have stepped up their game. We'll also drop those that are no longer deemed 38-worthy. After reading the comments on the original list, poring over the emails sent to to the tipline, and tuning in to various back channels, we're dropping sentimental favorites/wild cards Allegro Romano, Washington Square B&G and Ocean Taqueria. New to the 38, we're adding Boulevard, Range and now that it's got six months under its belt, the newly-eligible Flour + Water. Welcome to the dance floor, kids.
