Barely more than a year old, this restaurant from a pair of fine dining alums impresses with an immaculate five-course tasting menu and a stunning, international wine list that will please even the most discerning palates. Though exceptional, said bottle selection is curated to just 250 offerings, meaning each was thoughtfully chosen to complement the new American cuisine.
From The Sommelier: “I’m excited to see more focused wine lists in high-end restaurants. I don’t believe it’s necessary to carry thousands of wines in order to offer extraordinary wines. At Protégé we feature just 250 selections, making it more important for me to be very thoughtful about each wine and how it can improve our guest’s experience…I prefer to keep the Protégé wine list concise so that guests can get to what’s really important: sharing delicious food & wine with their family and friends!” —Dennis Kelly, Protégé
