The annual program recognizes restaurants around the world as the top destinations for wine lovers. This is the fourth consecutive year I.d. has received the award. 

“American restaurants are back in business, as patrons are eagerly returning to dining rooms across the nation,” said Marvin R. Shanken, Editor and Publisher, Wine Spectator. “In this year’s Restaurant Awards issue, we reflect on how restaurateurs navigated this incredibly difficult period, and look ahead, with every indication that the coming year will be one of the most promising in decades for an industry we all love. It’s been a long road back, and it feels wonderful to celebrate restaurants and all they bring to the world of wine.”

“I.d. Delafield is proud to be recognized with the Award of Excellence, an honor that we will celebrate with our employees and our guests,” said Brian Felleti, assistant general manager and sommelier at I.d. “Pairing incredible wines with one-of-a-kind dishes is what we do best - and we love doing it.” 

Wine Spectator began its program to recognize the world’s best wine lists in 1981. I.d. has won the Award of Excellence, recognizing 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.
