BYOB Bottle

Bringing Your Own Bottle to dinner?

Follow some easy tips:

  • If you are headed to a new Chicago restaurant, it’s always a good idea to CALL FIRST and ask the restaurant about their corkage fee. I’ve recently walked into a restaurant that claimed to have NO CORKAGE FEES, but the moment they brought the bill, we were charge $15 for “3 Buck Chuck” from Trader Joe’s.
  • For all you white wine drinkers, remember to BRING YOUR BOTTLE CHILLED. Not all restaurants have ice buckets to keep your wine chilled.
  • This last tip was based on an adventure while looking for a BYOB eatery recently. Bring Your Own Wine Glasses. Not all restaurants have wine glasses….believe it! (Anabelle, this is where you jump in and complete the story).
