Who wants to play to the wine list game?

It's a big ask, I know...but I thought some of you might enjoy it ;-)

Here's the wine list at a seafood-centric Chicago restaurant, L2O. My husband will drink only a token taste, so it's just me drinking. But the limited wines by the glass start at $14 and get serious in the mid $20 range. I think I'd enjoy drinking part of a bottle for for $50 than peering at my likely-to-be-tiny $23 pour.

So...what do you guys see that should be delicious and a decent value, with maybe a top price of $70 for a bottle, $45 half bottle, $90 for champagne/sparkler (husband will actually drink some champagne.) Left to my own devices, i would probably have ordered one of the Alsace Gewurtz, a Viongier from France or PNW, or totally punt and get a NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Or maybe that $40 prosecco.

What would you do?

Thanks, and bonus points awarded for anyone who knows what Chicago/Illinois law is about taking an open bottle from a restaurant (it's cool here in the Carolinas.)
