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 LA's hottest restaurant, narrowing the field down to Superba Snack Bar, Laurel Tavern, and Messhall. Today the vote is for LA's Bartender of the Year, or bartenders in the case of a team working together. This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
