Welcome to day five of the eighth annual Eater Awards, honoring the most talented restaurant and bar industry gurus in cities across the world. Here’s how the Eater Awards work: All 24 Eater cities and the national site will grant prizes in multiple categories, including but not limited to Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year.
In each category, there will be an editor’s choice winner and a readers’ choice winner — all to be announced on December 5, 2017. The readers’ choice winners get unlimited bragging rights as Eater fan favorites. The editor’s choice winners will each receive an illustrious tomato can trophy, as is the tradition around here.
And that’s not all. Over the course of the coming year, stay tuned for features highlighting what makes each of the editor’s choice winners so great.
Earlier this week, readers voted on the Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, Design of the Year, and Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurant of the Year. Today, the final category is up: Gamechanger of the Year.
One note on nominee eligibility: The Awards focus on restaurants opened in the past year or that had recently turned on the lights when the 2016 Eater Awards were compiled (October 2016).
