Best Savvy Sommeliers 2017: The wine list at Sovana echoes its food in both quality and variety. Expect a smattering of top-notch local vintners alongside delicious offerings from France, Latin America and beyond. The knowledgeable sommeliers are helpful if you’re on the fence or need an education on the menu.
Best Cocktail Bar 2014: Indulge in lovingly crafted cocktails that spotlight the flavors of the season. In the hands of Sovana’s skilled bartenders, aromatic herbs, fresh fruits and infused liquors make for memorable combinations.
Best Restaurant 2013: It's been 15 years since chef Nick Farrell introduced his country-chic bistro, and the place never gets old, thanks to plates executed with Mediterranean-inspired gusto and an ever-evolving, locally inspired seasonal menu. Since shedding its BYOB status, Sovana has devised a crafty in-house beverage program with creative seasonal cocktails, an extensive wine list and local micro-brews.
Best Kennett Square Restaurant 2007: A French bistro with an Italian soul, Sovana has a farm-to-table mindset and respect for the land, and its kitchen operates on the premise that classic techniques never go out of style. Eclectic would be a fair assessment of the Mediterranean-inspired menu. Its signature pizzas are prepared in a gas-fired hearth that utilizes water-soaked wood chips - its distinct aroma pervades the restaurant. The tapas-style antipasto of the day weaves sweet-sour-salty tastes and a variety of textures into savory combinations.
