Suze at NwHwy/Midway $25 corkage fee, but could be worth it.
Farnatchi on the southwest corner of 75 & Knox. Great simple Italian food and completely BYOB.

Campania is great....a friend of mine owns it and I love it.

Dali allows BYOB inspite of their emphasis on their own wine program. Admirable really.

Is this generally known to the Dallas public at large? Or, is it for the "insiders"?

Policy. They are beer and wine only, not mixed-beverage facility, so it's allowed. If this were really a concern, PM would be best.

Unfortunately, Dali has closed. Very sorry to see it go. Tough business.

(Irrelevant now, but Paul wanted to be known as "wine friendly" and didn't want to discourage his loyal customers from bringing special bottles at Dali. But, at the same time he didn't want to become known as BYO haven. He would never refuse anyone BYO though. One of the great guys on the Dallas restaurant scene and I hope he ends up in a good situation!)

I thought Bolla was at the Stoneleigh in Uptown? Is there another one, or similarly named restaurant? Or, maybe you meant Bolsa?

(If it's Bolsa, can you give details on how you brought the wine in since they have a full bar which usually precludes BYO?)

Thanks!

My typo it is Bolsa not Bolla in Bishop Arts. Yeah we just called ahead and asked and they said no problem. I think they charged us $10 a bottle. Took a bottle of Chard for while the sun was still up and then 2 cabs not on their menu.

I agree with everything on that list except Eden. We went to Eden one time and it flat out sucked. We haven't been back since.

Do we want to include Fort Worth and the Mid Cities in this list?

P-Rob, you can remove Amici's from the master list. I'm pretty certain at this point that Bartolino is not going to re-open after the fire.

That isn't always the case. Most occasions that's absolutely true but I've seen them completely at random get a bug up their a$$ and pop the table for $25.00 per bottle.

The Commissary

Post #25  Postby John Kight » August 9th 2011, 2:20pm

The Commissary (in One Arts Plaza) has a very reasonable Corkage policy, which I think successfully strikes a balance between the needs of the wine geek and the commercial needs of the business.

First, let me note that their wine list is terrific, but will appeal much more to the "Anti-Flavor Wine Elite" than to lovers of SQN and Chris Ringland Spanish wines. The list is filled with reasonably priced quirky wines that make you curious to order just to try them (including bottles of Beajolais Blanc, Assyrtiko, Blaufrankisch, Ribolla, Charbono, Dornfelder, etc.)...The majority of whites were clustered in the $30-$47 range (and most of the reds, $45 to $70), with some number of exceptions in both directions. The unique thing was the pricing--I would say the price of most of these wines was something like 40%-70% above the normal retail price (which is terrific compared to the normal 100%-300% above retail you pay at most restaurants).

Anyway, the corkage policy (if I understood it correctly--don't rely on me without verifying first) was that you could bring one bottle in, corkage free, for each bottle you purchase off their list. In addition, you were allowed up to 2 ADDITIONAL bottles at $20 corkage per bottle. (The usual caveats apply--e.g. no BYOB allowed if it's a wine already on their list, etc.). This might not be great for a giant BYOB wine blowout dinner where each person wants to bring 4 bottles, but it is terrific if you just want to go to dinner with your wife or significant other, so you can buy a nice Champagne or white from their list, then share a special bottle from your cellar.

Regarding the food, I will withhold judgement as I was only there once (and it was a special fixed-price menu prepared for our group), but it struck me as quite good and certainly promising.

Back in the day, Terilli's allowed corkage - $20 or $25. I don't know if they will now that they have reopened. And what's with the Italian restaurants burning down anyway??

Mr Wok. 14th near the intersection of Jupiter in Plano. No corkage. Some if not the best Peking Duck in the Dallas area. Must order the duck 24 hours in advance.

Fino's Italian Bistro in Plano is BYOB.
Rick's Chophouse in McKinney charges $25 per bottle but I have paid nothing if I let the wine steward taste. Not sure this works every time but worth a try.
Gregory's Bistro also in McKinney is BYOB.
Covino's in Plano is BYOB. No corkage.

I have found that quite a few places with full bars will allow BYOB for a price but it is always best to call and ask. The policies have changed on me to so I always confirm before going.

New to the forum, but our favorite BYOB place, far and away, is the Cafe Italia on Northwest Highway in Grapevine. There is a second Grapevine location on Highway 26 which is also good, but we prefer the original location.

Went to Suze on Saturday night and brought 3 bottles but was only charged corkage for 2= $50. It's a bit pricey however their food is so good and priced well so it all evens out.
