Next Monday brings us Eater Awards 2012, a 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 six major categories, the voting for which begins now.
You've helped narrow the field in Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, So Hot Right Now and yesterday, Bartender of the Year. The week's final category is a new one for the Eater Awards: Stone-Cold Stunner. This award is all about the look of the place — restaurant design from furniture to menus. 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? Polls are open now and will close in 24 hours when a new poll will begin. Voting irregularities will be strictly policed. Have at it!
