Next Monday, Eater will present the 2013 Eater Awards, our fourth annual celebration of all that's made America's restaurant world run—and run wild—in the past 12 months. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories, the voting for which is under way right now.
Here's how the voting works across the board: Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories. Eater readers will vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
There are still a few scant hours to get your vote in for Restaurant of the Year if you haven't done so already. (That poll closes at 4 today.)
But now, it's time to vote for Philly's Chef of the Year.
Note: Conscientious readers will note that many of these chefs have more credits to their name than are listed here. For the sake of brevity on our poll, we named their most recent or primary gig.
