I'd pick the lowest lying places, in case you have a short time horizon.

They do not allow any outside bottles.
One of the few restaurants we frequent that we do not bring our own.
The wine list extensive but expensive.
The do have reasonable bottles but not the top shelf.

Thanks - I was only there once, a few years ago, with a large group, and I remember the list being expensive. What wine do you usually order off the list?

We were last there June 29.
We have a favorite manager who moved there about a year ago. His name is Marco. Feel free to use my name. He will give you some extra attention.
I think the wines were about $80 each.

Thanks, but I can go to Lucali here in Brooklyn anytime! Or not, given the crazy hype and many hours of waiting for ... pizza.
