I like to spend less than $100/bottle unless there is some special reason.) Also, I don't have much of a love for wine pairings, so given my own choice, I won't do it unless it is the only reasonable option (did at Alinea recently, did not like the pairings.) So, still not sure how much is the most, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't compare to some of the bigger hitters on here.
Me too. Rarely spend on wine. So many restaurants offer corkage now that it is pointless. Sometimes the really rare stuff is rather fairly priced, but I'm not generally in that ballpark.
