Seattle's Refreshed List of 38 Essential Restaurants; Next Level Burgers to Expand to Seattle

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

EATER MAPS -- It's time to update the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?" This elite group covers the entire city, spans a myriad of cuisines, and collectively satisfies all of your restaurant needs, save for those occasions when you absolutely must spend half a paycheck. Every quarter, we add pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months), or have stepped up their game. Head over this way to see the updates.

BURGERWIRE -- Bend, Oregon-based Next Level Burger is possibly headed to Seattle, the restaurant's co-founder Matthew de Gruyter confirmed to Eater Seattle. Next Level Burger specializes in so-called "plant-based" food; all burgers, hot dogs, shakes, salads, sides, and sandwiches are made without animal products.

COMING ATTRACTIONS -- Three bicycle cafes—each with some combination of repairs and food and drink offerings—are headed to Capitol Hill and the Central District. Peloton is opening at 12th and Jefferson, Metier is coming to Union Street, and there's a "mystery rider" coming somewhere soon.
