If you’re looking for a bite to eat, this is the place! This edition of Foodie News features an array of holiday offerings as well as an announcement regarding Wine Bar George.
The World of Fine Wine recently announced the World’s Best Wine Lists for 2019, where over 1,000 of wine lists from across the globe are assessed base on a range of criteria including breadth, depth, interest, quality, value, clarity and accuracy. The awards are as renowned as the Michelin Stars of the wine industry and include a number of best-in-class category winners. We are honored and thrilled to announce that Wine Bar George was awarded Best Micro Wine List in the World 2019 and Best By-the-Glass Wine List With Coravin in North America 2019. The restaurant was also honored by The World of Fine Wine for having a three-star wine list (the highest star designation).
