Restaurants with Great Half Bottle Lists

I'm working on writing an article for Cork & Knife about restaurants around the U.S. that have great half bottle wine lists. Especially interested in ones with a variety of selections, both in style and price. Anyone have any favorites they would like to suggest?

  1. I will be interested in seeing what responses you get. While a lot of places now sell wine by the glass, I have come across very few that offer wine in half-bottles.

    If I ever open a wine bar and/or restaurant, I will sell nothing BUT half-bottles!

      "Nothing but" half bottles seems a bit overboard to me, but I agree with the sentiment. Far too few places give guests the chance to enjoy the benefits of half bottles. I have come across a few on my own in my travels and in my early research have already found several others. Hopefully our fellow hounds can think of a few others...

    2. Some discussion regarding half bottles in a thread a couple inches down:

      1. Quince in San Francisco has a terrific list of half-bottles.

            Here where I am in Miami, somewhat slim pickins. Michy's is not that broad but reasonably well-selected:
