Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Awards recognize restaurants with wine lists that offer unique selections, are appropriate to the cuisine they serve and appeal to a wide range of wine drinkers. Restaurants that meet the requirements are judged for one of the three awards: Award of Excellence, Best of Award of Excellence and the highest award, the Grand Award. Award criteria includes wine strengths, wine selections, wine pricing, corkage fees, cuisine type and menu pricing.
