At 6 p.m. (PST) Wednesday, November 16, Eater will present the 2016 Eater Awards, our seventh annual celebration of all that's made the Portland restaurant world run — and run wild — in the past 12 months. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels, and the voting begins right now. First up: Restaurant of the Year. Cast your vote for this year’s top restaurant below.
2016 was a bustling year in the Portland restaurant scene, with restaurateurs opening in neighborhoods far from the city center and exploring new styles of service. Read more about each of this year’s nominees: Chesa, SuperBite, Hat Yai, Han Oak, and Paiche.
Here's how the voting works: Eater editors have named nominees in Portland for each of five major categories. Editors will pick winners from the nominees, and readers will vote to award one nominee in each category with a readers’ choice award. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
