Tips needed...don't want to embarass myself with BYOB at Scaramouche

Suburban Gourmand | Oct 4, 2008 11:50 AM

I was planning on bringing a bottle of red to Scaramouche. I have some nice wine put down, but I'm not a wine expert at all, and don't want to bring something that the sommalier will have on his "guess what the stupid customer brought" roster of stories for decades to come.

Is there a general price point where you just don't BYOB? I know that the corkage is $30, so would a bottle that was purchased for, say, $60 at a wine merchant be sufficient. Higher? Lower?

Any tips you could give would be much appreciated, and sorry for being so ignorant about this!
