EATER INSIDE -- We're still waiting for the final installment of the Renee Erickson trifecta on Capitol Hill (her General Porpoise coffee and doughnut shop is pending) but the project is two-thirds complete: Bar Melusine and Bateau opened on Monday. And they're just as charming as we've come to expect from Erickson's Sea Creatures brand.
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. And it's just been updated for November 2015.
VITAL UPDATES -- By now you've probably heard about the Chipotle E. coli outbreak that has sickened dozens, closed stores in Washington and Oregon, and led to at least one lawsuit. Eater is tracking updates to the story as it unfolds.
