The Eater Awards are coming up soon and we've been asking for reader help all week to narrow down the nominees. Voting for Restaurant of the Year went down on Monday, and yesterday's vote narrowed down the pool for Portland's So Hot Right Now restaurant to Wafu, the Woodsman Tavern, and Salt & Straw. Now it is time to take a look at PDX's Chef of the Year.
Here's how it works: Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories. Eater readers will vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
