It’s already proving to be an award-winning year for the restaurant, and we’re far from the end of 2010! And the awards are:
Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Wine List Awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers. This award gives a nod to lists with more than 100 selections that demonstrate a well-chosen selection of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style, and Pearl made the cut.
Recognizing the great lengths we go to in hosting some of the most compelling, well-rounded winemaker dinners around, the training we give our servers, our dedication to maintaining an excellent list and its Washington-centric weight, these two awards made the team very proud to be an ambassador of Washington wine.
Recently named a 2010 Washington Restaurant Neighbor Award Winner (small business category) for giving back to Eastside Domestic Violence Program and Overlake Service League, the WRA named Pearl Bellevue as one of three state finalists for consideration in its National Philanthropy Award. We’re excited at the possibility of giving even more to our community leagues if we win nationally! Three award committees, local and national, deemed Pearl Bellevue worthy of commendation, yet none of it would be possible without you, our guests, supporting us in the work we do. Thank you, again!
