So, I've been sitting on an amazing Brunello for years, and I think I'm ready to bust it open just before we move into the hot summer weather - a last hurrah for the cooler weather that allows us to drink the "big" wines.
So question - where should I take it? The restaurant obviously needs to offer corkage, and I'm partial to downtown (at least, anywhere below 23rd street). I'd also prefer them to be nice about the corkage, and not resent it (I'm sure this depends a lot on who your waitstaff is though).
Not into super-fancy like a Bouley or Daniel, but I can definitely handle most budget levels. What do you think?
