Next Monday, Eater will present the 2012 Eater Awards, our third annual celebration of all that's made America's restaurant world run—and run wild—in the past twelve months. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories, the voting for which begins right now.
Yesterday readers voted for Restaurant of the Year, narrowing the field down to 800 Degrees, Bäco Mercat, and Mo-Chica. Today a slew of hot spots will go head to head to compete for the title of So Hot Right Now. This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
