Hungry Twin Citians, your attention, please. Next Monday, Eater will present the 2014 Eater Awards, our fifth annual celebration of all that's made America's restaurant world run—and run wild—in the past twelve months. Winners will be selected in five major categories at both the local and national levels. Each day this week, readers will have the opportunity to vote in one category. Today: Restaurant of the Year.
Here's how the voting works across the board: Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories: Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, So Hot Right Now, Stone-Cold Stunner, and Bartender 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're starting things off right this second with Restaurant of the Year. This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed. Have at it!
