Wine Spectator Honors Three Restaurants at Beau Rivage
MGM Resorts International’s Gulf Coast Resort Restaurants Among 3,759 Winners
Three award-winning restaurants at Beau Rivage Resort & Casino have been honored for their outstanding wine programs in Wine Spectator’s 2018 Restaurant Awards. BR Prime, Stalla and Jia have been recognized with the Award of Excellence every year since 2007 and 2008, respectively. Beau Rivage houses three of just 13 restaurants recognized in the state of Mississippi.
“This year’s class of restaurants is one of the most impressive and innovative ever,” said Marvin R. Shanken, Editor and Publisher, Wine Spectator. “Their wine lists keep improving, because wine lovers are eager to explore and learn. The goal of our Restaurant Awards is to support restaurant wine programs and bring them to diners’ attention through our outreach through print, digital and social media. Wine Spectator salutes every restaurant honored in the 2018 Restaurant Awards.”
BR Prime, Stalla and Jia each received the Award of Excellence. This award recognizes restaurants whose wine lists feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.
“Our wine program features more than 3,000 bottles of wine on display, and compliments our menus to provide guests with superior selections from popular wineries, as well as from some lesser known gems. It is an honor to be selected for this recognition for our tenth and eleventh years, as it illustrates Beau Rivage’s commitment to bringing truly exceptional wines to South Mississippi,” said Beau Rivage Sommelier Harry Hall. “We constantly review our offering and menus to provide the best possible selection for our guest. Based upon customer feedback and suggestions, it is not uncommon for us to bring in new wines. For us, it’s really all about guest satisfaction.”
The complete list of award winners is available in print in Wine Spectator’s August issue and online at Restaurants.WineSpectator.com, where visitors can search and access exclusive content on the more than 3,700 restaurants.
