2001 BEST Sommelier
Alicia Towns, Grill 23 & Bar
This Harvard-educated sommelier spends most of her nights winning over the suit-and-tie crowd that flocks to Grill 23′s polished interior. Towns’ wine list is impressive, with solid selections of steak-friendly cabernets and zinfandels, as well as some choice boutique options not available in other restaurants. Her presentations are as flawless as her knowledge is vast.
