BYO in MSP?
I love BYO places, and recently made a short list of the ones I have learned about during my time in the MSP area. Note that some of the places allowed BYO a few months or even a year or so ago - they may have had an unfortunate change of heart since my experience. Here goes:
Margaux ($15 corkage)
A Rebours (no corkage but it may have been because it was my birthday)
Unfortunately this is a short list. Any other suggestions?
On a less high-toned note, I think Michelangelo's pizza on 50th and Washburn (?) lets you BYO. I've seen people drinking wine with their pizza, and there is no wine/beer on the menu. Don't know about a corkage fee, but I really doubt it.
Good pizza there, by the way, and way kid-friendly.
We've found just about all bistro to fine dining places in the Twin Cities allow BYO. We've found corkage is usually between $20 - $30:
Lurcat (actually all D'Amico spots)
Chai's (no corkage)
All the steak houses
You get the picture. I'd just like to know more places that don't charge a corkage.
