Bastide Review

after seeing the dabate about bringing outside wine in, I decideded to try the policy out, and the food. I must say, when I showed up for my 7 O'clock RSVP I was seated, and as I pulled out my bottle of wine, the waiter informed me that they did not allow outside bottles of wine in the restaurant.... I asked why, and I was informed that it was Illegal and the ABC could shut them down..... (I called the ABC today, and It is illegal to bring wine into a restaurant.) well much to my disappointment, I looked at the menu, and I ordered a bottle of the 82 leoville La casse, at a bit more than $400 a bottle, picked up my cell phone, and call dominos pizza and had a large cheese pizza dropped off, when it came the Chef and GMs face dropped as I sat in the restaurant and ate my pizza and enjoyed my wine, when the first objection was raised, I pointed out that they never stated that no outside food was allowed. well they were discreet and actually put my slices on plates in the kitchen for me, and even offered water. I tipped the dominos guy $20...... zilch to the restaurant
