When you get back from the actual polls--you like democracy, right? Sure you do!--may we suggest clicking after the jump below to vote for today's entry in the Eater Awards 2011. Which of these restaurants is So Hot Right Now? Will it be Abraham Salum's Komali? Tiffany Derry's new joint? Or something from an Oak Cliff contender?
Only your votes can help us decide, come Monday, when the winners of the Eater Awards will be announced. This week, we're putting forth our nominees and requesting that Eater readers vote to narrow the field down to three. Editors will choose the winner from the top three. (In yesterday's Restaurant of the Year competition, your votes narrowed down the field to three: Cane Rosso, The Grape and Smoke. Congrats, y'all!)
Today, we've curated a selection of the hottest, trendiest new places that will go head to head to compete for the title of So Hot Right Now. This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
