The year is almost over, which means it’s time to recognize the best restaurants in D.C. That’s right, the Eater Awards are here.
All 24 Eater cities and the Eater national site will grant prizes in multiple categories. That includes Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year in every city. In Washington, there will also be wild card categories this year for Neighborhood of the Year and Brunch of the Year. For a look at the 2017 D.C. winners, head here.
Each category will crown an editor’s choice winner and a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on Wednesday, December 5. The reader’s choice winner gets bragging rights as a fan favorite. Per Eater tradition, the editor’s choice winner will receive a tomato can trophy in the mail. Additionally, each Eater city will run a feature about every editor’s choice winner in the coming year.
Vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Restaurant of the Year category in the poll below. Polls are open for 24 hours. The finalists in other categories will be rolled out throughout the week.
