Next Monday, Eater will present the 2012 Eater Awards, our third annual celebration (and Maine's first time at the table) of all that's made America's restaurant world run—and run wild—in the past twelve months. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories, the voting for which begins right now.
Here's how the voting works across the board: Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories. Eater readers will vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
It's time right now to vote for Maine's Chef of the Year:
*Chefs Andrew Taylor and Michael Wiley of Hugo's and Eventide are nominated as a team.
