Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Eater Awards, the eighth year that Eater LA will honor the city’s best and most talented restaurants, chefs, and other hospitality experts from around the world.
All 24 cities will grant prizes in different categories, from Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year. In each category, Eater editors will make their pick while the Reader’s Choice will be up to you, the avid Eater reader, to decide. All winners will be announced on December 5.
Yesterday was Restaurant of the Year, and the polling is now closed. Today, we decide the Chef of the Year, and many of the nominations are chef duos (this was done intentionally as many restaurants now have teams of chefs command the kitchen).
Which person or duo should win Chef of the Year?
This poll is closed
