Shanken, editor and publisher of Wine Spectator. “Restaurants that make wine a priority are what the Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards program is all about. I’m pleased to congratulate all 3,777 restaurants for their dedication to wine and exemplary wine lists.”

“I’m so proud that Briquette has received this distinguished award for the past 4 years,” said Anna Tusa, Briquette- Beverage Program director. “I work very hard on our wine program so that we have a vast selection of fine wines for our guests.”
