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, Stone Cold Stunner, and the Saddest Restaurant Closing of the Year. Now voting for the Eater Awards ends with the bartender of the year. Cast your vote now.
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 Lillian Hargrove, the new lead bartender at Delmonico Steakhouse at the Venetian; Juyoung Kang, the lead bartender at The Dorsey at the Venetian; Emily Yett, the former Herbs & Rye bartender who now heads the bar program at Primrose at the Monte Carlo; and Lyle Cervenka and Bryant Jane, who opened Starboard Tack this year.
