Wine Spectator magazine recently released its 2016 Restaurant Guide, again naming Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Le Jeune Chef Restaurant among the “Award of Excellence” recipients.

The world's best wine lists are featured in the annual guide, which presents the winners in the magazine’s Restaurant Awards program. Hailing from all 50 states and more than 70 countries and territories, the establishments that made the list put wine front and center, alongside creative menus and attentive, knowledgeable service, according to the magazine.

Wine Spectator grants its Restaurant Awards at three levels. The Award of Excellence, received by Le Jeune Chef, is given to lists that feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.

The restaurant’s extensive wine selection allows Penn College’s hospitality management and culinary arts students to learn about wine service and food-and-wine pairings, and it benefits patrons who wish to learn more about wine.
