24 Days Left to Nominate an Eater Young Gun

eater-young-guns-2012.pngAfter only one week of opening the floor for nominations for this year's class of Eater Young Guns, we've already received 930 nominations. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't keep submitting names to our search. The aim of Young Guns, which launched last year with the inaugural 16-person class, is to identify the most promising up-and-comers in the restaurant and nightlife world, whether they're working as chefs or line cooks, sommeliers or bartenders, restaurateurs or maître d's.

Nominees must be under 30 years of age (or have worked in their chosen field for less than five years) and must be currently employed in the hospitality industry in the United States. Though you most likely haven't yet heard their names, they must show extraordinary promise. These kids are the future, those that will soon lead the business but have yet to receive critical attention.

Do you know someone who deserves to be honored as an Eater Young Gun? Fill out the nomination form here; if you have additional supporting materials, please send them our way at youngguns@eater.com.
