Local restaurants noted for wine

Congratulations to the Crow's Nest, Marx Bros. and Seven Glaciers, each of which received a "best" designation in Wine Spectator magazines 2013 Restaurant Wine List Awards. Lavelle's Bistro in Fairbanks also got the two-goblet label.

Three goblets indicate the highest level; no Alaska eatery did that well. but eight others got the single goblet entry level Award of Excellence: Sack's, Southside Bistro and Sullivan's, all in Anchorage, Zack's Restaurant in Fairbanks, Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, Homestead Restaurant in Homer, Resurrection Roadhouse in Seward and Nenana View Bar & Grille in Denali.
