Next Monday, Eater will present the 2014 Eater Awards, our annual celebration of all that's made San Diego's restaurant scene turn over the past twelve months.
Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories; here's how the voting works across the board: Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories. Today, you're voting for which San Diego restaurant is So Hot Right Now.
Eater readers (that's you!) will vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner. The poll for chef of the year has now closed; the three finalists are Richard Blais, Chad White and Jason McLeod.
Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed. Vote and spread the word!
