List of New York City Resturants Where You Can BYO Wine - NYC Wine Tasting

[ NEW YORK, NY - NYC - 3/3/2006 - www.Littleviews.com ]

BYO Wine Tasting Angelica Kitchen New York

>>  What’s a New York wine geek’s favorite way to dine? It's at one of the city’s BYO restaurants.

For the most part, BYO restaurants with no corkage fee are tiny and serve simple, honest food. Many of them don’t take credit cards or reservations. While some of the city’s finest restaurants prohibit BYO or charge a high-priced corkage fee, a few generous gems welcome your special bottles with pristine glasses at a low cost.

Below are a few favorites of mine that charge $15 or less per bottle when you bring your own. For tips on how to make proper arrangements, please read my article, Bring Your Own Wine (BYO) to a New York Restaurant.
