On Thursday, November 17, 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 12 months. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories, and the voting begins right now. The polls are now closed for restaurant of the year and chef of the year, stone cold stunner, pastry chef of the year, and now the hottest restaurant. Which restaurant is this year’s hottest restaurant? Decide in the poll below.

Here's how the voting works: Eater editors have named nominees in Los Angeles for each of five major categories. Editors will pick winners from the nominees, 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; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
