On Monday, November 16, Eater will present the 2015 Eater Awards, our sixth annual celebration of all that's made the restaurant world run — and run wild — in the past 12 months.
Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories, and the voting continues right now. (All nominated Boston-area restaurants opened in late October 2014 or more recently; likewise, all nominated people work at restaurants that opened in the same time period.)
The polls are now closed for Restaurant of the Year and Chef of the Year. Next up? Bartender of the Year. Cast your vote below for the person who really stepped up behind the bar in 2015.
Here's how the voting works: The Eater editorial staff has named nominees in Boston for each of five major categories. Eater readers will vote on one category per day through Friday, November 6, narrowing the nominees to three finalists in each category. 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.
