WICHITA — Mike’s Wine Dive has joined an exclusive club.
It has received an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator.
In the last few years, Chester’s Chophouse — which also won the award — has been the only Wichita restaurant to have the distinction.
A number of factors, such as the depth of a restaurant’s wine list, determine selection.
This is the first year for Mike’s, which opened in April 2010, to vie for the award.
“We were just getting going (last year) so it wasn’t something that I was ready to do yet,” says Brad Steven, Mike’s co-owner and wine director.
He’s already thinking about next year because he wants to increase his rating.
