Grand Rapids’ own Reserve Wine & Food made the list of USA Today’s “10 great places where wine bars serve flights of fancy.”

Paul Cappiali –– who leads the Wine School at VERO Restaurant & Wine Bar in New York –– was asked to compile the list.

Here's what the USA Today has to say about Reserve.

"The owners combine their passions for local food and notable wine at this restaurant offering dozens of wines by the taste, glass and bottle. 'I perked up when they told me what they wanted me to try. I immediately trusted them,' Cappiali says. Offerings span the globe, from a sparkling Michigan wine to a Chenin Blanc from South Africa."

The restaurant acknowledged its inclusion on the list on its Facebook page, which reads, “Honored to be one of the top ten great places that serve wine flights in the country by USA Today! Go team Reserve!”

Reserve is co-owned by Dick and Betsy DeVos and Martha's Vineyard owner Khameel Chamelly. The bar opened in 2010 and has been a popular downtown spot for wine and food lovers ever since.
