Next Monday, we'll present the Eater Awards 2011, a yearly 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 four major categories, the voting for which begins now.
Here's how it works. Eater editors have named nominees for each category. 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? Polls are open now until tomorrow at noon; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
