Does anyone know of any restaurants in the Toronto area that allow you to bring your own wine? Has anyone ever tried this? The only place that I know that said they would allow this was Le Trou Normand in Yorkville. They said they would charge a $20 corking fee. I never actually tried this out, but I know from calling a number of the city's finer dining establishments, many will flatout refuse you bringing your own wine, even with a corking fee. It is a shame, especially if you have a special bottle of wine that you'd like a nice gourmet meal with. On the bright side, it has forced me to become quite a skilled home cook - just so I can do justice to some of my wines!
