Mini rant: Fish. in Sausalito's Wine List
The food, as usual, was pretty good with impeccable fish and reasonably good preparation.
This time around, I was in the mood for a glass of wine, so I took a look at the offerings. None particularly appealed, but the shocker was the markup. A bottle of Vinho Verde from Aveleda that we used to buy at retail pricing of $6-7.50 was listed for $26! My friend's glass of organic 2006 McFadden Pinot Gris had gone off, perhaps because the wine is so low-sulfite it's not shelf-stable, but at $10 a glass it should have been a decent quality wine. Retail on that one is $16, I think it was $29 a bottle on the menu, but prices are missing from the online version.
What gives? How many other restaurants in the area have the chutzpah to sell an un-aged wine for 4x retail, and serve it in tumblers?
At places like this with cheapie wines at jacked up prices, I bring my own good stuff and pay the corkage.
Yeah that place confounds me. I really like the food but the prices seem soooo high. And I agree their wine list is kind of weak and uninspiring. that's why I normally get a pitcher of beer instead.
