The James Beard Award winners were just announced and one of our favorite places in Seattle took a W!
Canlis, a Seattle staple, took the win for the most "Outstanding Wine Program." The criteria being a restaurant in operation five or more years that serves as a standard bearer for excellence in wine service through a well-presented wine list, knowledgeable staff, and efforts to educate customers about wine.
If you aren't familiar with the James Beard Awards, it's essentially the Oscars, only for food. Basically - the best night of the year. Winners were revealed Monday night at the Lyric Opera in Chicago.
Wayhoo, go Canlis! Get ya wine, I mean, win on.
