On Wednesday, Nov. 16, Eater will present the 2016 Eater Awards, our seventh annual celebration of all that's made the Las Vegas restaurant world run — and run wild — in the past 12 months. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels, and the voting begins right now. Voting already took place for Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, Stone Cold Stunner and Off-Strip Restaurant of the Year. Cast your vote.
Here's how the voting works: Eater editors have named nominees in Las Vegas 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; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
Nominees for 2016 include Montecristo Cigar Bar at Caesars Palace, Parlor Lounge at the Mirage, Clique Bar & Lounge at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Libertine Social at Mandalay Bay and Herbs & Rye on the west side.
Note that Eater Award nominees reflect the best of what was new and newsworthy in Las Vegas restaurants over the past year (from November 2015 until October 2016). Take a look at last year’s nominees and winners here.
Bar of the Year is a new category in 2016.
