French Laundry corkage fee - $150 Wow! [Yountville, Napa Valley]

willyum | Feb 3, 201407:32 PM     69

Visiting the Bay Area this weekend, dining at French Laundry, Atelier Crenn and Manresa. While skimming the FL wine list I noticed that the corkage fee is now a hefty $150, up from $75 the last time we visited.

I've never actually brought a bottle of wine to a restaurant so this is a service I don't need, but this still seems pretty steep to me. I checked the other two restaurants just for comparison and Atelier Crenn is pretty friendly at $45. Didn't see a number for Manresa.
