Wine Spectator grants its Restaurant Awards at three levels. The Award of Excellence, received by Le Jeune Chef, signifies sufficient choice to satisfy discerning wine lovers.

Le Jeune Chef’s wine list offers 410 selections, encompassing major varieties from the world’s key wine-producing regions. It has been recognized in the Wine Spectator Restaurant Guide each year since 1995.

The restaurant’s extensive wine list allows Penn College’s hospitality management and culinary arts students to gain hands-on experience in wine service and food-and-wine pairings, while the educational atmosphere allows patrons to learn more about wines, as well.

Just under 3,600 restaurants were recognized in Wine Spectator’s 2017 Restaurant Guide, 78 of them in Pennsylvania. In addition to Le Jeune Chef, the list includes Williamsport’s DiSalvo’s restaurant.
