Wine advice for Schwa

I am going to Schwa tomorrow and was hoping to get a couple recommendations on how I should best take advantage of their BYOB policy. It will only be my wife and I but we don't mind walking away with a couple partially consumed bottles. Given the menu, I'm not sure how exactly I should select wines to pair. Should I buy half bottles? I would love to spend the money on some great wines but I don't want to select wines that will clash with the meal. Is this the type of meal that is worth bringing a nice Barolo to or should we pick more subtle wines? I just see this as such a great opportunity to go to Sam's and indulge myself. I figure that I would have spent about $100-$200 on wine at an equivalent non-BYOB restaurant so why not spend that money anyway and get phenomenal wines
