Stephen Beckta

The central figure in a New York Times article titled "Hey is that Sommelier Old Enough To Drink", Stephen Beckta is part of the new breed of young snooty, aloof wine know-it all". Sommelier at Danny Meyer's Eleven Madison Park; Stephen "makes a wine list feel like a ticket to adventure rather than an I.W. test". Graduating from Algonquin College's Sommelier program with honors in 1997, Stephen followed his love for wine as the Wine Director at the Ritz group of restaurants in his hometown of Ottawa, Canada before coming to New York. Spending the first two years in Manhattan at Daniel Boulud's innovative Cafe Boulud, Stephen made his mark receiving two Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence. Currently, Stephen can be found in the dining room of EMP, pursuing his passions for both wine and "enlightened hospitality", at what is destined to become a New York institution.
