On Monday, November 16, Eater will celebrate all that's made restaurant scenes buzz across 24 Eater sites in 2015. It's a little something we like to call—drumroll, trumpets, gongs—the sixth annual Eater Awards. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories, and the voting begins now. The poll is now closed for restaurant of the year. Next up? Chef of the Year. Enjoy a photo gallery of the nominees, and cast your vote for the Montreal chef, or chefs, that made a difference in 2015.
Here's how the voting works: Eater editors have named nominees in 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.
