It’s day two of the 2018 Eater Awards, the ninth annual year that Eater honors the most talented restaurants, chefs, and other hospitality world experts in cities around the world. Today, Eater is looking at Chef of the Year — an award that lets readers vote on who really shined in the Denver/Boulder dining scene this past year.

All 24 Eater cities grant prizes in different categories, including Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year. Both an editor’s choice winner and a reader’s choice winner will be selected in each category, and both will be announced on Wednesday, December 5th.

This year, nominated chefs include Max MacKissock, who followed his wildly successful restaurant, Señor Bear, with a French family tribute at Morin; Kyle Foster, who opened a sleeper hit of sophisticated Southern comfort food inside Julep; Linda Hampsten Fox, who evolved her ambitious debut, day-to-night restaurant and bakery, the Bindery; Amos Watts, who melded a local beef program and Old World tapas at Corrida; and Dana Rodriguez, whose innovative second restaurant, Super Mega Bien, has gained national recognition.

The poll closes in 24 hours; cast your vote now:
