Vesta wins in Colorado Wine Industry awards
The Colorado Wine Industry announced the winners of its 2008 Restaurant Recognition Awards Monday night. The competition, which I wrote about a few months ago in " Colorado wine sure is fine ," handed out honors in two categories: Best Colorado Wine List and Best Use of Colorado Food and Wine.
The best wine list award went to The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery, at 25 West Cimarron Street in Colorado Springs ( Vines Wine Bar, at 19501 East Main Street in Parker, got an honorable mention for best Colorado wine list, especially its dessert list). And the Best Use of Colorado Food and Wine went to Vesta Dipping Grill, 1822 Blake Street.
I talked yesterday with Matt Selby, chef at Vesta and also at Steuben's, who was both happy and humble about the recognition.
We'll drink to that.
