Hi folks, we're the home stretch of the 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) and So Hot Right Now (Ballast Point Tasting Room & Kitchen, Waypoint Public, Polite Provisions) categories.
Again, a quick reminder of 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 for San Diego Bartender of the Year. We know what you're thinking. Haven't we done this already?
But this vote is for the Bartender of 2013, which means that he or she is a star at a new bar that's opened in the past year or at a bar that has recently made significant changes to their cocktail program.
