Wine-Palo

Just wondering if I can take my own bottle of wine to Palo? If so, how much is the corking fee?
Thanks

Yes you can bring your own wine. They charged me $20.

Thanks, I just figured it might be cheaper to bring our own.

You can carry in a glass of wine each and not be charged a corking fee....or bring a bottle and pay $20.

I do this for Palo dinner (not brunch - too early); not because I'm too cheap to pay the corking fee, but because I only want 1 glass of wine. And, this way, I don't get "hassled" to order wine in Palo

I guess it's a matter of preference...

Palo or Remy would be the only restaurants I would pay a corking fee at. We would each drink at least 2 glasses of wine during our time there. Our bottle of wine would still cost less (corking fee included) than if we were to buy a bottle at Palo or Remy...and we do have our favorite wines that aren't easy to find.

I have always wondered if they would waive the corkage fee if you brought in a high end wine that they don't carry.
I know a lot of fine land based restaurants will. I had a friend who took great pride in going to a very nice restaurant for a special occasion, and making sure he brought fine bottle of wine that was not in their cellar. He was even more pleased if it was a wine the sommelier had heard of, but had never tried.....and he always asked the sommelier to sit down with them and try a glass.
