11 Route de Pauillac, Arcins, 33460, France

The scruffy restaurant is easy to miss, but is something of a clubhouse for the wine elite. It provides on-site lockers for the winery owners to store their own bottles, so diners can simply crack open their family's case and swap with friendly rivals two tables over. It's hard not to notice that everyone's labels are facing out as to compete in jovial one-upmanship. Given the private stashes, the restaurant doesn't offer much in the way of wine by the glass, so bring your own bottle and join the label game.
