Selanne Steak Tavern Earns “Best Of” Award from Wine Spectator

Industry leader publication Wine Spectator magazine has announced its 2018 restaurant award winners, and Selanne Steak Tavern has once 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. All award winners will be featured in the August 31 Wine Spectator issue, which just hit newsstands.

“The Best of Award of Excellence is only garnered by restaurants that typically offer 350 or more selections and are destinations for serious wine lovers – places that have a deep commitment to wine, both in the cellar and through their service team,” said Selanne Steak Tavern owners Teemu Selanne and Kevin Pratt. “We are exceptionally proud of our wine collection and of all the efforts put forth by our gracious and talented team, led by newly certified Advanced Sommelier Vito Pasquale.”

Selanne Steak Tavern earns The Best of Award of Excellence 2018 

Selanne Steak Tavern, an upscale steakhouse and tavern housed in a chicly transformed historic 1934 home on Pacific Coast Highway, 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 located at 1464 S Coast Hwy. For more information visit www.selannesteaktavern.com or call (949) 715-9881.
