eater global guide

Last week, Eater launched their first global guides, applying the popular Eater 38 model to cities all over the planet. You can find my Eater 38 for Rome here, which includes new spots like Tordo Matto, Sbanco, and Retrobottega alongside my longtime favorites. Frankly, coming up with 38 solid restaurant recommendations was tough and I had to venture out of the category to fill out the list–eating well in Rome is hard now y’all. But IMO takeaway joints like Pizzarium and Mordi e Vai are every bit as important as Armando al Pantheon and Cesare al Casaletto. Venues are listed in geographical order, starting in centro, then branching out to other parts of town. The list will be updated regularly to reflect worthwhile new openings (or to bump venues that aren’t up to snuff). Be sure to check out the other city lists here, especially the greatest Istanbul round-up ever written.
