Wine Spectator Magazine Recognizes Friar Tuck’s

Friar Tuck’s Restaurant & Bar in Nevada City has been recognized by Wine Spectator magazine with a 2011 Award of Excellence.

The selection is announced in the August 31 issue of Wine Spectator as part of its 30th annual international awards program.

“We are very honored,” said Friar Tuck’s founder and owner Greg Cook. “This is a prestigious award in the restaurant industry. It puts us up there with the big boys; some of the greatest restaurants all over the world.”

Friar Tuck’s was singled out for its extensive California wine selections and moderate pricing.

Cook, who opened Friar Tuck’s in 1973, continues to operate the popular downtown restaurant with his wife, Rona. Friar Tuck’s seats 185, offers two wine cellars with more than 300 wine selections and attracts a clientele from across the region.

“We work hard on our wine selections and we’re proud to be part of the wine community in Nevada County,” Cook said.

Friar Tuck’s is located at 111 North Pine Street in historic downtown Nevada City. Call 530-265-9093 or see
