Inexpensive BYOB Place in LA

Hello all, my little group of 6 is really into BYOW (wine) restaurants right now. Feeling a little been there done that about the spots we know of though (Doughboys, Le Creperie, Kathmandu Kitchen). Any suggestions, Chowhounds?

  1. The only reason to eat at Alejo's is to BYOW.

    That's harsh. Almost the only reason -- sometimes I'm in the mood for the bread and garlic and sometimes I like the food, too.

    On Lincoln, at Washington in Venice.

    It's cheap, too.

    And everyone brings their own wine. Except me. I bring my own beer.

    1. Here's one list for Santa Monica.
      If you search for low corkage, you'll find a bunch more threads.

      1. I believe that Alegria, the Mexican place on Sunset in Echo Park/Silver Lake, is BYOB. And they've got excellent food, to boot.

          Alegria is BYOB -as is Gingergrass (conveniently located across the street from Silver Lake Wine), but corkage is $7

        2. mao's kitchen in venice.
          they serve california-chinese food--NOT authentic chinese food for which you need to go east.
          also, they are open late.

          1. banderas, houstons and gulfstream.
