How do you feel about NOT ordering wine at $$ dinners?

agarose2000 | Apr 29, 2008 07:40 PM

I'm Asian, and tend to turn beet-red when I drink small quantities of alcohol. I do like tiny glasses of wine, but I tend to prefer to not drink wine with my meal at restaurants.

I find that at higher-end restaurants, is it considered "ok" to not order wine with the dinner? I'm always amazed at how a little bit of wine will literally double the bill - but I do feel somewhat strange when I get various offers for the wine list, and I turn them down.

Just wondering - I know wine's one of the prime moneymakers for restaurants, even the high-end ones.
