Thanks to Reid Edwards’ suggestion, let’s start compiling deals we hear about low or zero corkage fees at Bay Area restaurants.
I’ll start. Khoon Chang, one of my favorite Thai restaurants in San Francisco, charges $6. I brought a special German Riesling there that my boyfriend brought back from Frankfurt recently.
The Barney’s chain, with locations in Oakland, Berkeley and San Francisco, does not charge corkage. Some friends and I split the price of a fabulous Sonoma Pinot Noir at Solano Cellars in Albany once and walked across the street to the Barney’s and drank it with turkey burgers in the restaurant’s tumblers. Good times.
Recession or not, isn’t that what wine should be?
