Next Monday marks the 2012 Eater Awards, recognizing the best and brightest of the country's restaurant scene over the past 365 days. Voting kicked off yesterday for Chef of the Year and that poll is now closed, but voting for Restaurant of the Year is now open until tomorrow at 10 a.m.
Just to recap how this all works: Eater editors have named nominees for Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, So Hot Right Now and Bartender of the Year, plus a new category this year: Stone-Cold Stunner. Eater readers will vote to to narrow the nominees down to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner. Now get to voting! (Sorry, we don't have any "I Voted" stickers to give out, so just pretend, okay?)
