It’s the last day of voting in the 2018 Eater Awards, an annual celebration of Dallas’s finest restaurants and most talented culinary professionals. Readers have already voted in the Chef of the Year, Restaurant of the Year, Design of the Year, and Bar of the Year categories, and now it’s time to determine the year’s best new casual restaurant.

Here’s how it works: All 24 Eater cities and our big sister will award prizes in multiple categories, including Chef of the Year, Bar of the Year, and Restaurant of the Year. In each category, Eater staff will choose an editor’s choice winner, and readers will vote for a reader’s choice winner. Editor’s choice winners will receive one of Eater’s iconic tomato can trophies, and reader’s choice winners will score a lifetime of bragging rights.

This year, four laid-back eateries are up for Casual Restaurant of the Year, including Oak Lawn’s Malibu Poke, Zoli’s NY Pizza in Addison, Laotian eatery Zaap Kitchen on Lower Greenville, and hand roll spot Namo in the West Village.

Without further ado, cast your final ballot in the 2018 Eater Awards. The polls will be opened for 24 hours, and are strictly monitored to prevent any voting irregularities.
