Masa, corkage, and etiquette for a date?

abec | Nov 30, 2011 07:45 AM

Hello, hello wonderful chowhounders~
I have a bottle of Armand de Brignac Brut Gold that I have been saving for the right occasion . . . tonight I am being taken on a date to Masa (!!) and wondered if it would be poor form to bring the champagne. I know my date will insist on this being his treat but I would really like to add to the evening in some way . . .

a. is this tacky? can i arrive early and leave the bottle with the maitre'd?
b. is this even allowed?
c. is there something else i could do to show my appreciation for the grandness of the evening?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
