Speaking of which, would it be a problem to bring a decanted bottle of port to the restaurant? I did it at one place which was apparently a no-no, but then no issue when I did it at another. Port never shows well when popped and poured.
bman, to get around the "open bottle" restrictions, you could try dropping the wine off at the restaurant a day or two before so that the somm can decant it for you in advance of your arrival. Works for me .
