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. 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. -- Always call in advance to be sure of the policy.
