Eater Awards 2016: Montreal’s Readers’ Choice Votes by the Numbers

How the voting panned out.

Larry’s — the Eater Montreal Readers’ Choice Restaurant of the Year

The winners of the 2016 Eater Awards were announced yesterday, but in one key change this year, there were two winners in each category. Eater’s editorial teams selected one winner for each category, and Eater readers had an opportunity to vote for a Readers’ Choice winner from among five nominees in each category.

In Montreal, next-door little sibling to Lawrence, Larry’s, took out the reader’s choice award for Restaurant of the Year for its all-day small plates, neighbourhood feel and solid natural wine list — after a bonus run-off vote after it tied with Hoogan et Beaufort. Poutine inverseur Danny St-Pierre claimed Chef of the Year for his new Mile End spot Petite Maison. Stylish Foiegwa, in a former Belle Province in Saint-Henri took out the Stone Cold Stunner title for the best restaurant design, with the Gauley Brothers’ Franco-American diner with classy period touches. Accolades for the Best Cheap and Casual Restaurant in the city went to Chez Tousignant, for its better-than-your-regular-greasy-spoon take on casse-croute classics from hotdogs to burgers nad poutines. Finally, Saint-Henri wine bar-restaurant Chez Lavigne took home the Best Bar Program prize for a biodynamic list of living wines exploring new terroirs.

But, how much did they all win by? To satisfy the statistician part of your soul, here’s the breakdown of each poll.
