Just when you thought all the election talk was over: Next Monday marks the 2012 Eater Awards, recognizing the best and brightest of the country's restaurant scene over the past 365 days. You've already help narrow the field for Chef of the Year and Restaurant of the Year, and now we want to know which restaurant is So Hot Right Now. The poll closes at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
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!
