The clock is ticking towards the second annual Eater Awards, and we are enlisting reader help to name the winners. Voting has gone down for Restaurant of the Year and the restaurant that's So Hot Right Now here and across the country. Now, it's time to find the Chef of the Year.
Here's how the voting works across the board. Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories. 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? This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
