On Tuesday, Dec. 5, Eater will present the 2017 Eater Awards, our eighth 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 and Stone Cold Stunner. Now, for the first time, the Saddest Restaurant Closing 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 include Scott Conant’s D.O.C.G. Enoteca with its divine pizzas at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas; N9NE Steakhouse, with its sudden closure at the Palms; Yusho and its clever Japanese fare at the Monte Carlo, pushed out to make way for Eataly; Payard, which closed to make room for Giada De Laurentiis’ Pronto at Caesars Palace; and Daniel Boulud’s DB Brasserie, now home to Chica at the Venetian.
