Looking to expand my horizons in Central/Northern NJ. What are the best BYO's you've been to in that vicinity?

Il Mondo Vecchio in Madison, NJ is a great Italian for a special dinner.

I went to Morton's in Weehawken, NJ last year, and they didn't charge us for corkage. Plus they decanted, and the wine glasses were great.
There were four us -- standard entrees with a couple of sides, apps, and dessert for the group. I had a delicious porterhouse. The wine: 1997 Cinq Cepages. Excellent! I could have sworn that they had charged a corkage fee because I had called ahead about bringing the wine. Maybe it was an oversight on their part.

I just want to give props to Osteria Giotto in Montclair that I tried last night. BYOB with nice stemware. Delicious food -- we had osso bucco, mussels and clams, and banzino (sp) on a bed of spinach among others. There was a parmagianno souffle on the menu that I wanted to try. Service was very good.
