Best of Award of Excellence
Our second-tier award, created to give special recognition to restaurants that clearly exceed the requirements of the Award of Excellence. These lists typically offer 400 or more selections, along with superior presentation, and display either vintage depth, with several vertical offerings of top wines, or excellent breadth across several wine regions.
Who else has this award you may ask. Oh, Jean-Georges and Gramercy Tavern. You know what they didn’t get, though? A green highlight, indicating a good value list.
