It's that time again: Next Monday, Eater will present the 2013 Eater Awards, our fourth-annual celebration of all that's made America's restaurant world run — and run wild — in the past twelve months. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories, the voting for which begins right now.
Here's how the voting works across the board: Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories: Restaurant of the Year, So Hot Right Now, Chef of the Year, Bartender of the Year, and Stone-Cold Stunner of the Year. 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? We kick things off the voting for Portland's Restaurant of the Year 2013. This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
