While COVID-19 has caused dining-room closures around the world, many restaurants are finding creative ways to continue serving their communities. Our latest Restaurant Spotlights highlight these efforts at Wine Spectator Restaurant Award winners.

Two husband-and-wife pairs, Claudia and Michael Taglich and Lindsay and chef Jesse Schenker, founded 2 Spring in Oyster Bay, N.Y., as an homage to mid-20th century Manhattan dining. Complementing their vision for the Long Island brasserie is a top wine list, holding Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence. While 2 Spring’s dining room and garden patio are temporarily closed, pickup and delivery options are available. The American menu has been pared down to select dishes, including lighter fare like a chopped salad and Scottish salmon, as well as heartier options like slow-roasted short rib and brisket with red wine jus. The 2 Spring team is also offering customizable in-home dining, catering and meal-planning services, with wine pairings available. For all takeout orders, a focused selection of wines is for sale from the restaurant’s 500-label list emphasizing France (especially Burgundy), Italy and California. There are 16 options for to-go bottles, most of which are priced under $50, including Champagne, Napa Chardonnay and a range of California Cabernet Sauvignons. Additional wines are for sale by request, including collectibles like aged Burgundy.
