Milwaukee Chop House wine list honored

For the eighth consecutive year, Milwaukee ChopHouse, located inside the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, has received Wine Spectator magazine's Award of Excellence for an outstanding wine list. The award recognizes restaurants with wine lists that offer a well-chosen selection of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.

According to ChopHouse Executive Chef Brian Frakes, many restaurant patrons come to the restaurant specifically to peruse the impressive wine selections.

The ChopHouse is one of 2,880 restaurants nationwide, and one of only 10 Milwaukee restaurants to earn Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence in 2010, and is in good company with one other hotel restaurant, Smyth, of the Iron Horse Hotel.

Other Milwaukee recipients include Joe Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro, Michele and Jeff Green's Bosley on Brady, Marc and Marta Bianchini's Indulge and Osteria del Mundo, Sandy and Angie D'Amato's Sanford, Sabor Brazilian Churrascaria, The Capital Grille, and the now closed Fratello's Waterfront Restaurant.

Bartolotta's Bacchus was the only Milwaukee restaurant to receive Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence in 2010, the publication's second-tier award which gives special recognition to restaurants that exceed Award of Excellence requirements by displaying vintage depth or excellent breadth across several regions.
