Raleigh, NC, July 13, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Ãn Asian Cuisines, a local restaurant showcasing an elegant blend of Southeast Asian flavors and European influences, has been named as a winner of the 2016 Wine Spectator Restaurant Award. This award acknowledges restaurants with wine lists that display excellent breadth across multiple winegrowing regions and/or significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation.
Since Ãn’s first entry in 2010, they have won the Best Of Award every year. Once each nomination is submitted, Wine Spectator rates each restaurant as it sees fit according to selection, price range, producer variety and global regional options, among other categories. Wine Spectator considers recipients of this award to have a deep commitment to wine, both in the cellar and through their service team. This award is quite prestigious as there are only 1,093 restaurants globally that have won this award. To date, the state of North Carolina has only 15 restaurants presented with this award.
“I am honored that Ãn has been chosen yet again to represent some of the forefront culinary scenes of not only North Carolina, but the world,” said Ãn beverage manager Laura Francis.
