The 2014 Eater Awards for Charleston

This year’s winners for restaurant of the year and more.

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

It is time now — drumroll, trumpets, gongs — to announce the winners of the 2014 Eater Awards. In over a dozen categories in 24 cities, the winners comprise a diverse group of the finest and most interesting chefs, operators, and characters in the continent that have defined this year in dining. We applaud them. You are hereby instructed to applaud them.

To recap, Eater's local editors in 24 cities nominated candidates for five major local categories: Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, Bartender of the Year, So Hot Right Now Restaurant, and Stone Cold Stunner. Eater readers then voted to narrow the field to a final three in each category. From that final three, the Eater editorial team chose one to move forward and the braintrust got together to decide the national winners. Without further ado, here's who came out on top in Charleston.
