Wine Spectator included two Lawrence locations — both hotel restaurants — in its 2013 Restaurant Wine List Awards, announced this week.
The winning wine lists — which the magazine says “offer an interesting and diverse selection of 100 or more wines that are well-presented and thematically match the restaurant cuisine” — are at Ten, inside the Eldridge Hotel at 701 Massachusetts St., and Five 21 restaurant, inside the Oread Hotel at 1200 Oread Ave. According to Wine Spectator’s listing, Ten has 200 wine selections, with California wine being a particular strength. Five 21 also has 200 selections, with a list strong in French and California wine.
Wine Spectator’s list includes more than 3,700 restaurants from across the globe, plus a few cruise ships. Outside the Kansas City metropolitan area, which has 21 restaurants listed, the other Kansas restaurants on this year’s list are 4 Olives Wine Bar in Manhattan, Chester’s Chophouse and Wine Bar in Wichita and Mike’s Wine Dive in Wichita.
Wine Enthusiast also announced restaurant honors this week, but in a much more exclusive list. The nearest restaurant named in that magazine's America’s 100 Best Wine Restaurants 2013 is Niche in St. Louis.
