Today, the results of the Sixth Annual Eater Awards were announced, and Eater Chicago has your Chicago best-ofs. It's a well curated (if not particularly surprising) list that's worth a read.
The award for restaurant of the year goes to Duck Inn, which is the big winner lots of places these days. The Bridgeport spot from Kevin Hickey keeps getting more and more attention. Bartender of the year goes to Paul McGee, for his work on Lost Lake and the bars at the Chicago Athletic Association, which also wins Eater's "Stone Cold Stunner" award.
Jimmy Papadopoulos, chef at Bohemian House, won Chef of the Year, while Boeufhaus took home the award for "So Hot Right Now." We shed a tear reading about the saddest closure of the year, which was Nightwood.
No Chicago restaurants made Eater's national list, but one Chicago concept did: Tock, the ticketing system created by Nick Kokonas of Alinea and Next. The ticketing system won "Gamechanger of the Year," with Ryan Sutton opining that "Tock is the future, right now."
