We had dinner at Locanda Vini e Oli the other night, and had half of our bottle of wine remaining at the end of our meal. When we asked if we could take it with us, we were told we could not. When I mentioned the New York State law, they said that the restaurant is still responsible for anything that might happen after the diner has left the restaurant, and that their lawyers have told them not to comply. Is it true that restaurants have this liability, and can each individual restaurant decide if they want to observe the law?
