Good morning, good Eaters of North Texas, this is your editor speaking. The time has come to cast your votes in the 2011 Eater Awards, wherein we ask you to help us choose the best of what Dallas has to offer in the way of chefs, restaurants and ... restaurant bathrooms. But we'll get to that last thing later in the week.
The winners will be announced next Monday, November 14th. Between now and then, you'll have the opportunity to lobby for your favorites. Eater editors have named nominees for each category: Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, So Hot Right Now, Bartender of the Year, and, like we said, Best Bathroom. Y'all vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists, from which the Eater editorial team will select a winner.
Today, we're talking Restaurant of the Year. Polls are open now for voting and will close in 24 hours when a new poll will begin. Voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
So, which of these excellent dining establishments deserves this prestigious award?
