Che Figata, the authentic Italian restaurant whose name is Italian for it's awesome, was bestowed its second Wine Spectator Award of Excellence this year. The restaurant received its first Wine Spectator Award in 2019, less than a year after opening.
According to its website, Wine Spectator's Restaurant Awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers. Award of Excellence recipients offer wine lists with a minimum of 90 selections from a variety of quality producers and with a thematic match to the menu. Che Figata's 100+ selections all are authentic Italian wines, aligning with the recipes and imported ingredients used in its food.
Che Figata explores the breadth of authentic Italian food - which is quite diverse and influenced by geography, including shorelines, mountain ranges and bordering countries. To accomplish this, in addition to its core menu Che Figata offers a special feature called Table Italiano in which cuisine of a select region is explored. Each month a new region is selected and featured both in a multi-course wine dinner held one evening, and in a prix fixe plate of pasta with a paired wine served all month long.
