Listing of corkage free places in LA

I am working on a list for my blog of corkage free restaurants in Los Angeles...

Can I get some help? I'll credit you in the article if you want! Just leave your name and location in your response!

Here are some I can think of:

Cobras & Matadors
Osteria La Buca? They told me there was a corkage, but they didn't charge me?

Or other restaurants with a corkage of less then $5?

                    1. re: bruinike

                      Awesome! Adding Boneyard Bistro: No corkage Thurdays. Tuesdays and Wednesdays half off many bottles on their list.

                      1. re: la tache burger

                        Boneyard? Awesome, I recently went for their half off deal. Although, you end up paying closer to retail. Which is still nice.

                      2. re: bruinike

                        Nice list, here are 2 more:

                        Soliel - French - Westwood ~ $5.00 corkage (oops, 1 penny too much).

                        Black Sheep Bistro - French/Spanish Mediterreanan - Tustin
                        $0.00 corkage, & you "can" rent their big wine glasses at $4.00 per or by definition bring your own and pay zero (scroll to bottom - in red):

                      3. INGREDIENTS
                        in North Glendale/Montrose
                        BYOB-no corkage

                          brownstone pizza. right next door to colorado wine company.

                          1. re: sarahjane

                            Colorado Wine Company has a corkage list for the area, they say they are going to update it sometime soon..

                          1. Is Cube more "dinner-like" at night? Candles, low lights? Or still kind of cafeteria-ish?

                            1. Houston's , Gulfstream, R&D, and most Asian Restaurants have ZERO Corkage.
