Welcome to the 8th 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. For a look at 2016’s D.C. winners, head here.

Each category will dole out an editor’s choice winner and a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on Tuesday, December 5, 2017. The reader’s choice winner gets unlimited bragging rights as an Eater fan favorite. The editor’s choice winner will receive an illustrious tomato can trophy, as is the tradition around here. And that’s not all — this year Eater will further the fanfare: Each city is running a splashy feature about every editor’s choice winner throughout the course of the coming year.

Now, without any further ado, it’s time to vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Restaurant of the Year category.

The nominees are:
