More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? What are the best new restaurants? What’s everyone talking about? While the Eater 38 is a crucial resource covering old standbys and neighborhood essentials across the city, it is not a chronicle of the ‘it’ places of the moment.

For those, we have the Eater Heatmap, a perpetually changing entity, constantly keeping the Philly scene fresh. This month, check out the panoramic scenery at The Logan Hotel’s new rooftop bar, Assembly. For breakfast or lunch, head to Pennsport for some Pennsylvania/Netherlandic Dutch goodies at The Dutch, and for more neighborly good vibes, hit up Jaxon for that distinctive Philly BYOB experience.

Restaurants are listed in order of opening date — newest first. Feedback always welcome via the comments section or the tipline.

1 Assembly

The Logan Hotel’s new rooftop bar opened on the Ben Franklin Parkway with stunning views and a bubbly-heavy menu. Ask the bartender for a glass of sparkles, or even better, Assembly’s lethal-yet-easy-drinking margarita, order some oysters if you’re feeling fancy, and soak up the scene at Philly’s new rooftop bar, set to be an absolute hit this season.

2 The Dutch

Two of the city’s best chefs, Noord and Neuf’s Joncarl Lachman and Fond’s Lee Styer, opened The Dutch to fill a breakfast and lunch void in Pennsport left by Fourth and Cross when it closed. The two chefs decided on an easy menu of comfort food, Dutch-style: Pennsylvania Dutch looks like Lebanon bologna omelettes, ring bologna benedicts, and Dutch baby pancakes, while Lachman’s Dutch items lean toward the European sort, like uitsmijters topped with 1732 Meats guanciale. It’s a simple diner, with simple food, but it’s the execution of it all — progressive when it needs to be, restrained when it ought to be (Rival Bros. coffee is served bottomless from coffee pots) — that makes the restaurant such a seamless addition to the neighborhood.
