On Wednesday, November 16, Eater will present the 2016 Eater Awards, our seventh annual celebration of all that's made the restaurant world run — and run wild — in the past year. (Note: Some of this year’s nominees opened in late 2015, after nominations for last year’s awards closed.)
Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels, and the voting begins right now. First up: Boston’s Restaurant of the Year. Cast your vote for this year’s top restaurant below.
Learn more about the restaurants: Bar Mezzana | Branch Line | Juliet | Saltie Girl | SRV
Here's how the voting works this year: Eater editors in each city have named nominees for each of five major categories. Editors will pick a winner in each category — those will be announced on November 16 — and readers will vote to award one nominee in each category with a readers’ choice award. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours (until 11 a.m. on Tuesday, November 8); voting irregularities will be strictly policed. Come back each day this week to vote in the rest of the categories.
