We are very lucky in Los Angeles that we have a relatively liberal policy of bringing your own wine to restaurants. Some other states and cities do not have the same luxuries. We have been compiling a corkage policy list for years, and lately, since we get asked all of the time, we are posting our findings. Always call in advance to be sure of the policy. And please feel free to contribute with an e-mail if you have a favorite that is not listed here, or if you have a correction. Links to all restaurants are provided here (just click on the name) and the list is alphabetical. Remember corkage is a privilege so be conscientious.
