My list of no or low-corkage ($10 and under) restaurants

tokyoastrogirl | Mar 16, 2004 02:52 PM

Here is a list of restaurants that have low or no corkage fees ($10 and under). Thought I would pass it along in case anyone is watching their wallet (like me!). I would call the restaurant before you go and double-check, as some of these places may have had no corkage due to not having a liquor license. There is a chance that their policy changed when they acquired one. If you know of any more, let me know and I'll add it to the list. If you see any glaring errors, please post as well.
