Welcome to day three of the ninth annual Eater Awards, honoring restaurant and bar industry talent across the country. Here’s how the Eater Awards work: All 24 Eater cities and the national site will award prizes in multiple categories, including but not limited to Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year.
In each category, editors will choose an editor’s choice winner and readers will vote for a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on December 5, 2018. Editor’s choice winners will receive an illustrious tomato can trophy, as is the tradition around here. Eater will further the fanfare by running a feature about every editor’s choice winner throughout the course of the coming year.
Now it’s time to vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Design of the Year category. Nominees includes Lebanese hotspot Suraya in Fishtown, the indoor/outdoor Irwin’s on the top of the Bok building in South Philly, University City’s long-running White Dog Cafe, which underwent a major revamp, and, also in University City, the French-inspired Louie Louie.
Polls will be open for 24 hours and will be strictly policed for funny business. Cast your vote:
