Next Monday, Eater will present the 2014 Eater Awards, our fifth annual celebration of all that's made America's restaurant world run - and run wild - in the past twelve months. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories, the voting for which is happening 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.
Already, votes have been cast and finalists selected for Restaurant of the Year and Chef of the Year. It's time right now to vote on which Philly newcomer is So Hot Right Now.
Up for consideration:
Dizengoff, Mike Solo's new hummusiya that regularly keeps a line out the door and nabbed a three-bell Inquirer rating, a rare honor for a spot with picnic-table seating.
La Colombe Fishtown, the flashy new flagship that puts on display some next-level ambition for Todd Carmichael's growing coffeehouse chain, with a full menu, bakery, distillery, and more.
Stock, the tiny, laser-focused, and lovely Fishtown spot featuring notable pho, banh mi, and more (including an awful lot of promise) from a pair of Zahav alums.
Brigantessa, the bustling new East Passyunk tavern from the chef and owners of Le Virtu that's equally traditional and on-trend, turning out true Neapolitan pizzas and more to honor southern Italy.
V Street, the new 'global street food bar' from the Vedge team, which has been packing people in by bringing bolder flavors and a broader scope to the team's renowned brand of vegan cuisine and cocktails.
