Corkage fees in New Orleans restaurants?

karendor | Nov 4, 201309:08 PM     35

Visiting in November (finally!) for T-day with the family. I am bringing several bottles of Sonoma County wine on the plane with me - cheaper than shipping -- and may want to take one or two out to eat.

I know NOLA has a few BYOB places, but do the fine dining establishments have corkage fees? What do they generally run? Should I just call around?

(In Sonoma County it is usually $15 - $20 per bottle although sometimes restaurants will have a "no corkage" special on certain nights.)

I did not do a search, so I apologize if this is covered in other NO posts.
