I’m heading to New York on 4/3 (driving up from DC). This time with a little more notice, I’m wondering if anyone wants to get a mini OL together?
Place: Peking Duck House Midtown
236 East 53rd St. New York, NY, 10022
Is corkage free? they’re telling me it’s $15 per bottle… do i just not know the right people/hand shake? Time: I made a reservation at 6pm Theme: TBD (Burgs? Piedmont? or just leave it open free for all?)

Seasoned PDH go-ers can tell us about the corkage / stemware needs.
Sorry we couldn’t squeeze you in at DiFara’s, I would be happy to get together if my schedule works out. Right now, I don’t see it being an issue. When we get a solid group together we can pick a venue. Some places might be better options than others for a Sunday night.
I’m sorry to miss this after having met up with Mark in Seattle before. I’m afraid that the consequences of trying to secure a wine offline “hall pass” for the weekend is quite daunting in my family neck of the woods. I will hopefully make it during your next visit.
Ok. The man wants Italian. Any nominees for best Italian midtown with good BYO? I don’t do a lot of Italian. Barbetta is nice but I’ve had better food. Cafe L’Incontro in Astoria is good but a PITA to get to.
BBB - I always thought that was Barolo, Barbaresco, Brunello.
