Wine Spectator magazine has honored more than 40 Washington restaurants for their wine selections. Winners include several well-known restaurants, including Canlis, The Capital Grille, Daniel’s Broiler and Ray’s Boathouse.
One winner – Bellevue’s Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi – was recently profiled in Seattle Business magazine.
All areas of the state are represented, including several restaurants in Spokane and a handful operating at resorts.
Wine Spectator began its Restaurant Award program in 1981. This year, the program honors 3,800 dining destinations from all 50 states and 79 countries.
All winners are profiled at Restaurants.WineSpectator.com. The full list of award winners is also available in print in Wine Spectator’s August issue, which hit newsstands July 16.
“Both novice wine lovers and seasoned sommeliers alike actively seek and frequent restaurants with exciting, well-curated wine lists,” says Wine Spectator Editor and Publisher Marvin R. Shanken.
