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 readers helped pick the Chef of the Year. Today, all-important Design of the Year for the most beautiful and gorgeous interior (and even exterior) restaurants in the city that opened in the past year. Take a long gaze at the gallery below and vote on the Design of the Year. (Note: Pacific Seas opened in late 2016 but didn’t qualify for last year’s vote)
