Welcome to day four of the 8th annual Eater Awards, honoring the most esteemed restaurants, bars, chefs, and more 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. Eater will also further the fanfare, running a splashy feature about every editor’s choice winner throughout the course of the coming year.
Next up: Game Changer, a new category in D.C. that reflects the transformation of our dining culture over the past 12 months. This latest evolution has been sparked by new arrivals, local favorites joining forces, and budding restaurateurs building future empires from scratch, among others.
The nominees for the reader’s choice winner in the Game Changer category are:
