Any "free corkage" restaurant recs?

non sequitur | Oct 23, 201401:36 PM     5

Jeez, I'm spending too much time on Chowhound lately. I had 2 flat tires in 2 days and spent a lot of time sitting in a waiting room.

Anyway, I'm cleaning out a 400-bottle wine fridge (drinking and selling - Bordeaux anyone?), and after a really cool experience in Chicago (where some very high-end places like Schwa and Goosefoot have free or "de minimus" corkage), I'm wondering if there is anything comparable here. Corkage prices seem to hover around $40, and even my go-to Bourbon Steak raised the fee from $25 to 35 (which if you bring 2 bottles adds up).
