Welcome to day two of 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 award 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.
In each category, editors will choose an editor’s choice winner and readers will vote for a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on Tuesday, December 5, 2017. Editor’s choice winners will receive an illustrious tomato can trophy, as is the tradition around here. This year Eater will further the fanfare, 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 Chef of the Year category.
The nominees are:
