For the past 37 years, Washingtonian has taken the pulse of the local restaurant scene by asking you, the reader, to play critic.  

What’s your favorite all-out splurge? Who crafts the smoothest cocktails? And which places are most overhyped and overpriced? Weigh in on our survey.

Your answers will be revealed in our December issue. A little incentive: Anyone who submits an entry is automatically qualified to win a free restaurant dinner for two.
