Wine for a Chinois Meal

Oopsie Daisy | Mar 22, 2002 12:04 PM

Help, 'hounds, help!

I've been invited to a dinner at Chinois tonight. I'd like to treat the party to a nice bottle of wine. Being unfamiliar with their wine list, and a wine know-nothing to boot, I'm wondering:

Do you recommend ordering something from their list, or bringing a bottle and paying the $20 corkage?

If it's the latter, I'd be looking at something in the $50 range or less, if possible. The person we're honoring is a big fan of California reds, so that's a must.

I'll be shopping at the L.A. Wine Co. in Culver City, if that adds anything.

Thanks in advance for your help.
