On Wednesday, November 16, Eater will present the 2016 Eater Awards, our seventh annual celebration of all that's made the restaurant world run — and run wild — in the past year. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels, and the voting takes place all this week. Voting in the first four categories — Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, Stone Cold Stunner, and Bar of the Year — is closed.
Our final category is a reflection of the hottest fast-casual trend to sweep Seattle in 2016: Poke Restaurant of the Year. Establishments devoted to Hawaii's raw fish salad, poke, popped up all over the map in the past twelve months, but which new arrival does it best? Cast your vote below.
Here's how the voting works: Eater editors have named nominees in Seattle for each of five major categories. Editors will pick winners from the nominees, and readers will vote to award one nominee in each category with a readers' choice award. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours (until 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 12); voting irregularities will be strictly policed. Take a look at last year's categories, nominees, and winners right here.
