Next Monday, Eater will present the 2014 Eater Awards, our fifth-annual celebration of the people and places that have made the past twelve months so delicious. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories, the voting for which continues today with Chef of the Year.
In case you're new to the process, here's how it works: Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories:
- Restaurant of the Year
- Chef of the Year
- So Hot Right Now
- Bartender of the Year
- Stone-Cold Stunner of the Year
All week long Eater readers -- that means you! -- will vote in each category, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner.
Yesterday we kicked things off with Restaurant of the Year. Today we're opening the polls for Chef of the Year. If you want to put your favorite chef at the top of the heap, scroll down to the poll and get clicking. It's only open for 24 hours. Check back tomorrow to see who rose to the top-three, and get ready to vote for the next category.
