Table 10, located in the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Palazzo, has won the Award of Excellence for the eighth time, recognizing restaurants with wine lists featuring a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style.

"We're honored to have all three of our restaurants included on Wine Spectator's award list," said Mike Olsen, director of operations for Emeril Lagasse's Las Vegas restaurants.  "We strive to bring the best of the best to our guests across the board through our food and beverage offerings and are excited to be recognized for our efforts."

"On behalf of Wine Spectator, I'm thrilled to congratulate each and every award-winning restaurant. They should be very proud," said Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher, Wine Spectator.
