Eater Awards 2018: Montreal’s Readers’ Choice Votes by the Numbers

Who got the most votes?

Elena, Readers’ Choice winner for Design of the Year

The winners of the 2018 Eater Awards were announced yesterday, and as with previous years, there were two winners in each category. Eater’s editorial team 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.

For fairness, nominees were only informed of the voting just after each 24-hour poll opened — that means they were unable to plan elaborate campaigns to get out the vote. The full percentage-based results are below, but first, some quick notes on the results.

  • This year, it seemed fewer restaurants and bars took our sponsored ads on social media than 2017, instead relying more on straightforward posts to Facebook and Instagram, particularly for the Casual Restaurant of the Year category.
  • Voting was far more competitive this year — no restaurant scored a blowout, with 40 or 50 percent of the votes in any category. The biggest winner was Fieldstone’s Chanthy Yen, for Chef of the Year, with 34 percent, while the closest category was Design of the Year, where Elena edged out Un Po’ di Più by just a handful of votes.
  • Similarly no restaurants totally tanked, earning below 5 percent of votes, as has happened in past years.
