According to Wine Spectator, their Award of Excellence recognizes restaurants who feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style. Their Best of Award of Excellence, their second tier award, is reserved for restaurants that are destinations for serious wine lovers, and display significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation.
