Best of Award of Excellence, Selanne Steak Tavern


Selanne Steak Tavern’s wine list has been cited by prestigious industry publication Wine Spectator magazine with a 2020 Best of Award of Excellence, the second highest level of its annual recognition program. For the last four years in a row, the upscale steak house has earned this honor, which will be featured in the August 31 Wine Spectator awards issue, hitting newsstands next month with full listings also found at

“Once again, we are very pleased our wine list, which is managed by Certified Advanced Sommelier Vito Pasquale, has garnered renewed kudos from Wine Spectator,” said Selanne Steak Tavern owners Teemu Selanne and Kevin Pratt. “The recognition for 2020 is especially meaningful as our staff has worked diligently during this year’s pandemic to maintain our valuable wine collection for guest dining experiences, including the approved distanced and safe dining we are presently offering throughout the restaurant and our garden settings.”

The Best of Award of Excellence honors wine lists that display excellent breadth across multiple regions and/or significant vertical depth of top wines, along with superior presentation.

Selanne Steak Tavern’s wine list is especially designed to pair with the award-winning contemporary American steakhouse fare created by Chef Vincent Terusa. Since the restaurant’s inception, it has received recognition and honors for its food and wine and spirits programs, as well as its exemplary service, including multiple Golden Foodie Awards for “Best Wine Program,” “Best Service,” “Best Steak,” and “Best New Restaurant.”
