The Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group has a great reason to celebrate—for the twenty-third consecutive year, the brand is being honored by Wine Spectator magazine. Each of the locations has been awarded the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, a nationwide honor given each year to restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers. The only exception is Chicago, which has received its third successive Best of Award of Excellence, created to give special recognition to restaurants that clearly exceed the requirements of the Award of Excellence. “Best of” wine lists typically boast 400 or more selections, superior presentation, and either vintage depth, with several vertical offerings of top wines, or excellent breadth across several wine regions.
The extensive Smith & Wollensky list features the best wines that the United States produces, in addition to “Undiscovered Gems,” boutique wines of exceptional quality—and our Premium Reserve crafted especially for us by Girard Winery.
