The full list of nominees for the 2018 Eater Awards

Beth McKibben is the editor and staff reporter for Eater Atlanta and has been covering food and cocktails locally and regionally for 12 years.

Welcome to day three of the 9th annual Eater Awards, honoring the most talented restaurant and bar industry gurus in cities across the world. Here’s how the Eater Awards work: All 24 Eater cities and the national site will award prizes in multiple categories. Each category will dole out an editor’s choice winner and a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on December 5, 2018. The reader’s choice winner gets unlimited bragging rights as an Eater fan favorite. The editor’s choice winner will receive an illustrious tomato can trophy, as is the tradition around here, and a splashy feature on Eater Atlanta in 2019.

Voting is now finished for Restaurant of the Year and Chef of the Year. That means it’s time to vote for Restaurant Design of the Year. Take a look at the 2018 nominees.

The sprawling brass and fern dining room and bar at Mission + Market, bathed in natural light from the large floor-to-ceiling windows, is given a modern makeover inside Buckhead’s Three Alliance Center.

Banshee incorporates rich jewel tones in stark contrast to the midcentury building’s exposed brick and cement walls and unfinished hardwoods as an homage to East Atlanta Village and its chill vibe.

At the Battery Atlanta in Cobb County, Garden & Gun Club is sleek, polished, and mixed with antiques — a familiar aesthetic to fans of the Southern magazine brought to life in the restaurant.

The breezy mood at Watchman’s Seafood & Spirits flows throughout the airy dining room, accented by succulents and hanging plants, bright whites and coastal blues, making diners forget the busy Krog Street Market beyond its walls.

The timeless design of Tiny Lou’s at Hotel Clermont includes elegant touches — white marble floors, brass accents, and bold wallpaper — harkening back to the golden age of fine dining at luxury hotels.
