The 2010 Santé Restaurant Award winners were announced October 4th 2010, and New World Bistro Bar in Albany won for Culinary Hospitality in the category for “Innovative” food. NWBB was one of only 16 restaurants in the country to be awarded this title.
Now in their thirteenth year, the Santé Awards recognize excellence in restaurant food, wine, spirits, and service hospitality. The Santé Awards program is the only peer-judged national restaurant and hospitality competition in North America. Applications are judged on their culinary philosophy, staff training and menu creativity.
Chef Ric won a Santé Award in 2006 for Culinary Hospitality at New World Home Cooking, Saugerties.
