It is time now—drumroll, trumpets, gongs—to announce the winners of the 2015 Eater Awards. In over a dozen categories, the winners comprise a diverse group of the finest and most interesting chefs, operators, and characters who have defined the year in dining and drinking in 24 Eater cities. We applaud them. You are hereby instructed to applaud them.

To recap, Eater's local editors nominated candidates for five major local categories: Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, Bartender of the Year, Hottest Restaurant Now, and Stone Cold Stunner. Eater readers then voted to narrow the field to three in each category. From that final three, the Eater editorial team chose one to move forward, and the Eater braintrust got together to decide the national winners.

Without further ado, here's who came out on top in Montreal.
