Welcome to day five and the final day 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.
Now, without any further ado, it’s time to vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Hotel Restaurant of the Year category. Across the country, the “hotel restaurant” is changing, and Denver is no exception. Once a pejorative description, the hotel restaurant is now both a travelers’ and locals’ destination. Whether these food and beverage concepts are underneath hotels, off their lobbies, or up on the rooftops, diners will find them. Below the historic Oxford Hotel, a very modern steakhouse with its own basement garden opened this year (see Urban Farmer). The Hotel Indigo has a hip new whiskey-slinging and meat-curing neighbor in Hearth & Dram. Late this summer, Le Méridien debuted Corinne, along with a soaring rooftop bar 54thirty. And underneath Union Station’s new Hotel Born, two concepts — Citizen Rail and, most recently, Tavernetta — are attracting city-wide attention.
Polls will be open for 24 hours and will be strictly policed for funny business. Choose wisely:
