my and I . . . ordered a bottle of Nickel & Nickel


And then you ordered a second bottle. Seems like a lot of duplication that night.

Anyhow - she poured the entire bottle at once? It's weird but don't assume it was all her decision. I went to a restaurant with a friend and my wife and we ordered a bottle. Wife gets up to go to the bathroom, the other guy stands to let her out, we're in a conversation so I'm not watching the table, and the waiter comes around the side and fills all three glasses to the brim. We asked him what the hell he did that for. He says the owner wants the glasses filled like that.

Apparently people ordering by the glass complained when they got glasses partly filled. They don't get their Coke or mixed drinks like that and didn't want their wine like that. So the owner bought small glasses and fills them to the brim. And this in "wine savvy" NYC. The place does great business too.
