Pinky's Kitchen is Closing—For Now; The Hottest Restaurants in Seattle Right Now

This week's top hits from Eater Seattle, Curbed's sibling bar, restaurant, and nightlife blog.

TEMPORARY SHUTTERS -- Pinky's Kitchen, the popular barbecue food truck parked in Wallingford, has announced that it has served its last whiskey pulled pork and meat-topped mac and cheese as of Tuesday. The truck's lease is up at the current parking lot location, so Pinky's is closing up shop, selling the truck, and hunting for a new space with the goal of opening in spring 2016.

HEATMAP -- It's the answer to many a question: What are the hot new restaurants? Who's the latest chef to open a new place? Where should I eat right now? The Eater Heatmap is a current reflection of the buzziest restaurants and places so new, they might not be on the collective radar yet. Updated for October, here's the latest list of Seattle's hottest restaurants.

OPENING ALERT -- The tortas are on, Capitol Hill. In July we learned that Monica Dimas of Nacho Borracho's beloved perma-pop-up Neon Taco would take over Kedai Makan's former window at 1510 E Olive Way sometime this month. It turns out Dimas is right on schedule: Her new Tortas Condesa will debut tonight.
