Making Dallas Even Better

Where are the Wine Deals in Dallas Restaurants?

Remember when the economy tanked and restaurants panicked. Most upscale restaurateurs slashed the markup on the wines in their pricey lists. I remember the flood of emails touting 50% off premium wines. I remember wondering  how they could ever go back up on their prices once customers got used to paying less. I guess the answer is to do it slowly over time and be thankful for a booming economy.

I bring this up because a friend of mine asked me for a list of restaurants that offer wine-by-the-bottle discounts on a regular basis. Veritas and Carbone’s rolled off my tongue and then I stopped.  If you have a suggestion, we’d love to hear it.

    Urban Vines (by White Rock Lake, on the Garland Road side) offers 30% off bottles every Wednesday. They have other specials too. Cute place and a great fireplace outside. We love them.

    Chamberlain’s Chop House always has a couple of pages at the front of the wine list with deeply discounted selections.

    Osihii Wednesday – 1/2 price bottles. Just went to Orgin last night for 1/2 price by the glass. I think State and Allen does 1/2 off Wednesday as well. Breadwinners might have a 1/2 price night too. It a great deal for weeknight dining out.

    My girlfriends and I love Cru on Thursdays for half price Champagne!

    Cru also does 1/3rd off bottles on Sunday and free pizza with a bottle on Monday.
