JACKSON, Wyo. — FIGS has been honored for its outstanding wine program in Wine Spectator’s 2021 Restaurant Awards. The annual program recognizes restaurants around the world as a top destination for wine lovers.
“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.”
“We are incredibly pleased that Wine Spectator has chosen to recognize FIGS wine list with their Award of Excellence. We take pride in offering these selections, which have been carefully curated from across the globe to be paired with our authentic Lebanese cuisine,” said Hotel Jackson Director of Operations, Michael Gray.
