On Monday, Eater will present the 2012 Eater Awards, our third annual celebration of all that's made America's restaurant world run—and run wild—in the past twelve months. Already, Eater readers have helped the editors narrow down the lists for Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, So Hot Right Now, and Bartender Of The Year. Now it's time to pick the restaurant with the best overall design. The Stone Cold Stunner category judges dining rooms, menus, uniforms, business cards, check presenters — the whole shebang.
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.
Thanks to all the readers who nominated restaurants for this award last month.
