Good BYOB in Manhattan?
I have some friends coming to visit this weekend and all they want to do is eat at BYOB restaurants. One of them is a vegitarian and none of us are looking to spend tooooo much.
Preferably in the lower east side. Any suggestions?
Jin (252 broome)
Cube 63 (63 clinton street)
Yozakura Kushiyaki Bar (68 Ludlow St)
Sticky Rice (85 sticky rice)
of these, i would say my favorite is jin. sticky rice has the most extensive vegitarian menu, but for the most part, it's just standard thai fare.
I second Ivo & Lulu. Broome between 6th & Varick.
It's a great place to go if you have a party of 2-4. The simple menu and the small space makes it feel like you're eating a home-cooked meal. They serve mostly organic ingredients, the atmosphere's very laid back, and the food is tasty.
Try the duck confit!
Sorry, but there really aren't very many good BYOB options in NY.
Angelica Kitchen in the E Vill. is veggie and BYOB. I'm not crazy about it, but my veggie friends like it. Tartine in the W Vill. has pretty good french bistro food and is BYOB, but is not too veggie friendly.
You're right, but I assumed that since the OP didn't want to "spend too much" they were looking for cheap eats with no corkage -- not a place to bring their special bottle of wine. I should have been more specific. So, OP, if you have a special bottle of wine and are willing to pay corkage, there are indeed many places. If not, you will have fewer choices.
