Welcome to day three of the 8th annual Eater Awards, honoring the most talented restaurant and bar industry gurus in cities across the world. Here’s how the Eater Awards work: All 24 Eater cities and the national site will award prizes in multiple categories, including but not limited to Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year. The Awards focus solely on restaurants that opened over the past year, including the tail end of 2016 after the previous Eater Awards nominations closed.

In each category there will be an editor’s choice winner and a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on December 5, 2017. The reader’s choice winner gets unlimited bragging rights as an Eater fan favorite. The editor’s choice winner will receive an illustrious tomato can trophy, as is the tradition around here.

And that’s not all: Over the course of the coming year, stay tuned for features highlighting what makes each of the editor’s choice winners so great.

Now, without further ado, it’s time to vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Design of the Year category. Come back each day this week to vote in two more categories. Polls will be open for 24 hours and will be strictly policed for funny business.

Cast your vote for Design of the Year now; the poll closes at 11 a.m. on Thursday, November 30:
