Wine Spectator magazine has announced its 2018 restaurant award winners, and Selanne Steak Tavern has again earned the second highest level of recognition – The Best of Award of Excellence. For 2018, this award has been achieved by only 1,215 winners from all 50 states and from 75 countries. And, all award winners will be featured in the August 31 Wine Spectator issue, which just hit newsstands.
Selanne Steak Tavern has received this award based on its impressive wine inventory of over 2,750 bottles with list strength in selections from California and Burgundy, France. The list also offers outstanding global selections, Old and New World from Washington, Oregon, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, Argentina, Germany, Austria, South Africa, Portugal, Canada and Australia. While the list is heavily focused on California cult wines with many highly allocated, low production, big scoring selections, it is designed to appeal to all wine lovers – their palates, pairing preferences and spending desires.
Recently, with the addition of being open for Sunday brunch, Selanne Steak Tavern has enhanced its beverage program by offering 11 sparkling wines by the glass at brunch – a prosecco, two brut rosés, a sparkling selection from Carneros, five non-vintage champagnes and three vintage champagnes from Perrier Jouet.
At dinner, the award-winning wine list complements Executive Chef Joshua Severson’s contemporary steakhouse menu featuring steaks, chops and other dishes served with classic sauces, bone marrow butter and sides – from the signature Lord Stanley Cut from Darling Downs, Australia, to Skuna Bay Salmon, Maine Lobster, Wagyu Steaks and Brandt Beef Short Ribs.
Selanne Steak Tavern is open for dinner nightly starting at 5 p.m. and for brunch on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For reservations and more information, call 949-715-9881 or visit www.selannesteaktavern.com.
