Welcome to the final voting day for Detroit’s 2017 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. Additionally, two city-specific awards categories have been selected by the editor: Hottest Restaurant of the Year and Best New Cafe-Market Combo.
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 Best New Cafe-Market Combo category. As one of the bigger trends of the past year, many cafes and restaurants devoted space to retail. Some offered dry good and produce, while other focused on hard-to-find specialty items and prepared foods for home use. It filled a niche for customers on the go and those who maybe didn’t have a full-scale grocery store in walking distance.
Polls will be open for 24 hours and will be strictly policed for funny business. Choose wisely:
