A Good BYOB in Queens?

Hey, can anyone reccomend a good, fun, BYOB restaurant in Queens that is attractive? Any cusine is cool, maybe a place that has not gotten a liquor license yet?

  1. De Mole in Sunnyside. This place has been talked about many times (search for De Mole or its old name, El Jarro) - yummy Mexican food with a nice, homey atmosphere. If you bring the tequila, they'll make margaritas for you. It's on 48th Ave. just off of 45th St.

    1. Unidentified Flying Chicken, Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson Heights. A really friendly place with super-tasty Korean-style fried chicken. We prefer sitting in the downstairs area. They are awaiting their liquor license, but encourage you to BYO in the meantime.


      1. Mombar on Steinway. Ali's brother has an excellent menu and he can cook, the place is fun and, if you're really into it, call him in advance and see what you can work out.

        1. Cafe Henri (casual French, specializing in crepes) in LIC has let me bring in wine because they don't serve it. I am not sure if they advertise as BYOB but the waitress I've had was cool with it.

          1. Burmese Cafe on Roosevelt and 72nd still doesn't have wine/beer license...

              I second De Mole (El Jarro). Great, inexpensive Mexican and you can even bring in your own Tequila and they'll make Margeritas for you! They charge around $6/pitcher for this though. This is my BYO of choice.

              You can also BYO at Spicy and Tasty (Sichuan) although they serve Beer and Wine.
