The end of the year is approaching fast, which means that it’s time for the Eater Awards. Now in their ninth year, the Eater Awards recognize the year’s most exciting restaurants and innovative culinary professionals. Each year, all 24 Eater cities (and Eater’s national site) award prizes to these chefs, bars, and establishments in a variety of categories, including Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year.
In each category, Eater editors will pick an editor’s choice winner, and readers can make their voices heard by voting for their favorites in each category. Polls for all five Eater Awards will be published daily throughout the end of the week, and the results will be announced on Wednesday, December 5. As is tradition, editor’s choice winners will win one of Eater’s coveted tomato can trophies alongside a lifetime of bragging rights.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, Eater Houston will take a deeper look at each editor’s choice winner with an in-depth feature on these award-winners throughout the coming year.
Without further ado, cast your ballot for Houston’s 2018 Restaurant of the Year below. This poll will be open for 24 hours, and will be strictly monitored to prevent any voting irregularities.
