steakhouse corkage venting

shanshan | Mar 23, 201504:01 PM     15

I wanna go to steakhouse but I don’t want to pay for a $100 bottle of wine that costs $25 at Duane Reade, let alone tip 20% on top of it (although really I have no problem with the tip). So many steakhouses have reservations available for Saturday night at 9PM. But $50 corkage fees a bit steep, especially when paying $60 for a steak!

I'm sure some somm or roll their eyes and call me a nitwit or cheapskate etc.

But I'm sure they would also agree drinking a $25 bottle of wine when spending $60 on an entrée is equally stupid. And yes, I can afford a $60 entrée but not a $200 bottle of vino.
