About Golden Spoon Awards
Florida Trend’s Golden Spoons are the oldest and most coveted dining awards in the state. The magazine started the awards 40 years ago as a guide to executives traveling around the state. The classic Golden Spoon recognizes outstanding fine dining restaurants that have demonstrated consistency in high standards and longevity, usually earned after three years in business or more. The chief criterion is the food, made from top ingredients sourced carefully and prepared with imagination and authenticity from entrees to vegetables and breads. and a setting that is well cared for and service that is knowledgeable and enthusiastic but not intrusive.
Florida has almost 20 million people and thousands of restaurants. The awards are highly selective and include approximately 100 top restaurants, which means only a handful of establishments in many markets. They cannot include all the fine dining choices in the state; having high prices, longstanding popularity or current buzz does not guarantee a Golden Spoon.
Chef Tim Creehan reestablished Cuvee in 2010, offering classic French, Asian and Mediterranean influenced delicacies along with his signature dishes including Amy Grant’s Seared Tuna Rare and Vince Gill’s Pecan Crusted Grouper. Cuvee repeatedly nabs an annual parade of accolades including Tripadvisor's Certificate of Excellence, Best in Destin, Finest on the Emerald Coast, Florida Trend's Golden Spoon Award for three years running, and the Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence for 2011, 2012, 2013.
