Although the magazine is a major arbiter of what the wine scene in America will be, its three-category awards list goes on forever. In New York State, for example, nine establishments received Grand Award status, the top level; 81 received the awkwardly-named Best of Award of Excellence honors, and 190 more received the Award of Excellence. That’s 280 awards.
Nine restaurants achieved Grand Award status. They are:
New York City
- 21 Club
- Del Posto
- Tribeca Grill
- Crabtree’s Kittle House, Chappaqua (Westchester County)
Friends Lake Inn Chestertown (Washington County)
- The American Hotel, Sag Harbor
