Is anyone aware of a resource for people who want a good restaurant with low or no corkage (under $10)?

Or maybe we could start one?

I know of the following:

Boxer (is it still open?)
Cafe Bizou
Paul's Cafe
Cayo (never been, though, myself)

I also know Spago will waive corkage on one bottle for every bottle you buy from them.

Personally, I think a wine store ought to compile a list of wine-friendly restaurants with their corkage policies, and hand it out at the register.

In the meantime, I'd love to get other suggestions.
