Josh Brasted

Welcome to day three of the 8th annual Eater Awards, honoring the most esteemed restaurants, bars, chefs, and more in cities across the world. Here’s how the Eater Awards work: All 24 Eater cities and the national site will award prizes in multiple categories, including but not limited to Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year. In each category, editors will choose an editor’s choice winner and readers will vote for a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on December 5, 2017. Editor’s choice winners will receive an illustrious tomato can trophy, as is the tradition around here. Eater will also further the fanfare, running a splashy feature about every editor’s choice winner throughout the course of the coming year.

The finalists this year are: Maypop (design from Farouki Farouki), The Country Club (design by Ferrand Design), DTB (design by Valerie Legras Atelier), Saffron NOLA (design from Farouki Farouki), and Curio.

Check out photos of the finalists below the poll.

Now, without any further ado, it’s time to vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Design of the Year category. Polls will be open for 24 hours and will be strictly policed for funny business. Choose wisely:
