Full 2019 Dining Guide Revealed in Wine Spectator’s August Issue
Lake Placid, N.Y. — For the 20th consecutive year, The View Restaurant at the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa in Lake Placid, has been honored for its wine program in Wine Spectator’s 2019 Restaurant Wine List Awards. The restaurant received the Best of Award of Excellence, and is recognized among other winners from all over the globe as a top destination for wine lovers.
Lake Placid’s only AAA Four Diamond dining establishment boasts an inventory of nearly 500 global selections, with an estimated value in excess of $125,000.
“We’re pleased to shine a spotlight on the destinations around the world that show devotion to their wine program, while also creating a comprehensive global dining guide for our readers to enjoy,” said Marvin R. Shanken, Editor and Publisher, Wine Spectator. “Both novice wine lovers and seasoned sommeliers alike actively seek and frequent restaurants with exciting, well-curated wine lists. Bravo to all the 2019 recipients—we raise a glass to you.”
Wine Spectator began its program to recognize the world’s best wine lists in 1981. There are three levels: the Award of Excellence, the Best of Award of Excellence and the Grand Award—with 2,447; 1,244; and 100 winners this year in each respective category.
The View Restaurant was cited for offering a wine list with significant vintage depth and superior breadth in one or more major wine regions.
“We are very happy to receive this notice once again, and thank Wine Spectator for this distinction,” said Nichole Dunford, The View Restaurant dining room manager. “We not only have a wide selection of wines to pair with our upscale Four Diamond menu, but the staff have the knowledge to assist our guests achieve an extraordinary dining experience.”
