For my 15th anniversary at work, I was taken to the restaurant ‘16’ at the new Trump Tower. When I called and made the reservation I asked what the corkage fee was. The hostess said why, they have a 500 bottle wine list. I told her that I had a favorite wine I would prefer. There was a $50 corkage and it couldn’t be anything on their wine list and she would have to check and get back with me. Needless to say they didn’t have a ‘98’ Chateau Margaux, a first growth bordeaux. When we arrived the bartender didn’t know what it was and was surprised that I brought my own wine. Our waiter, though, was very impressed and I let him have a taste.. I’m such a snob, I had to take my own wine to Trump’s restaurant.
