Thanks for taking the time to vote for this year's Eater Awards; so far, you've narrowed the nominees down to three finalists in the Restaurant of the Year (Buona Forchetta, Carnitas' Snack Shack, CUCINA urbana) and Chef of the Year (Trey Foshee, Javier Plascencia, Matt Gordon) categories.
For those who might be new, here's how voting works: Eater editors have named nominees in five major categories. Eater readers will vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner in each category. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
Today, we're voting on what's So Hot Right Now. These five spots, which each opened in the last year, are the places to be in San Diego right now. Which one do you think is serving the most heat?
