• Wine Spectator generous to NY wine lists

15 Jul

The annual list of Wine Spectator magazine awards for best restaurant wine lists in the nation is anything but an exclusive one.

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
  • Daniel
  • Del Posto
  • Gilt
  • Tribeca Grill
  • Veritas


  • Crabtree’s Kittle House, Chappaqua (Westchester County)
    Friends Lake Inn Chestertown (Washington County)

Long Island

  • The American Hotel, Sag Harbor
