OK, I'll take this on.

I'm going to need a lot of help with this one, as I'm sure a lot on this list is out-of-date. I'm still fleshing out a lot of the information. If you see mistakes, please post in this thread.

I have turned this into a Google spreadsheet, so you may sort the columns to your needs.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... E&hl=en_US


I'm posting the basic list here, but highly recommend that you go to the Google spreadsheet, as it is much more user-friendly.

Both Docle in Mid-city and Melogranos in Hollywood are closed. The Bazaar is now charging $30 per bottle. Providence is also $30 per bottle but still free on Mondays. [cheers.gif] Nick & Stefs Steakhouse downtown also offers free corkage (as do many of the restaurants in the Patina group - with the exception of Patina).

Great list Poppy.

There is an old thread on Chowhound that might be useful (It is from 2008 and also links to the old RP discussion of corkage).

Just expand the list. The longest post is 12/3/2008 which I had copied and pasted at that time.

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/568503 ... pic-568503

This list is always helpful.

Thanks,
Audrey

Thanks, Audrey. That list is what I started with and has been largely updated. I'm still updating things and fleshing out more of the data. I really encourage and thank people to send me updates, so we can get this list to be the most comprehensive list of LA corkage out there (I think it already is, but it could be better).

I fixed it... apparently I have to cut and paste twice as there is so much data. But I highly recommend everyone use the Google spreadsheet instead (http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key= ... HeFE&hl=en ) as it is much easier to read, will have the most current data and is sortable and searchable.

Yoni - how is that place? It gets great reviews on Yelp. Unfortunately their website is down so I can't see if they have many veggie options.

Wow. BYOB is definitely getting more costly at the better LA restaurants. Kind of hard to figure as one would think they still feel the depressed economy. $35 is unfriendly but (IMO) not offensive. $50 is out-of-hand.

Yep. We were charged 250 for six bottles

As long as people keep flocking to certain "in" hip places, $50 isn't going to make a dent at all in their reservations. Frankly, how many people bring wine to a place like Bazaar/Saam in the first place? Or care about $20 vs. $35 vs. $50 for corkage?

SAAM might be able to get away with it, though there aren't many sold-out top-end places in LA these days. I'd imagine even they have some empties if they are open six days, which they might not be. I like Bazaar/Saam but just won't go as frequently at $35&$50. I still haven't gone to La Botte which doesn't allow BYOB, even though it's nearby. I realize that I'm in the minority, but like I said not many places would be wise to turn off even 5% of their customer base. The problem is it's hard for a place to realize the reasons that, and extent to which, people don't come.

John--Well, I'm with you, and I generally won't go to a place that has a $50 corkage fee. But I also realize that there are some places (even high-end places) that aren't really interested in catering to people like me who want to bring in a nice bottle of wine, even if that means not filling an otherwise empty table.

Yoni - how is that place? It gets great reviews on Yelp. Unfortunately their website is down so I can't see if they have many veggie options.


Wow, haven't checked in on this thread in a while!!

The place is good, not fantastic. THat being said, the service is absolutely top-notch and the prices are great. I brought a few older Ridges to a dinner with Family and the staff (especially the owner) were amazing.

Vegan (and thus unlikely to be of interest to many board members), but Cru in Silver Lake is $0 corkage.

It is their standard policy as they said "no corkage" when I called to ask. Nice move in my opinion!
