East Village BYOB

Calliope1 Aug 14, 2007 10:09 PM

My greatest preference would be an Indian restaurant. I read several posts that referenced BYOB Indian places on 6th St, but I have been to some and they all have wine, so specific names would be great.

But any other cuisine is great too.

(Inexpensive and nominal or no corking fee, please.)

Thanks so much.

    Cafe Cortadito on E. 3rd near Ave. B is BYO. I have not been, but the restaurant was reviewed favorably in NY Magazine last week. Here's a link to the review.

            Sigiri is a Sri Lankan restaurant on 1st Ave. between 5th and 6th Street. They're good and spicy.

              Jeeb is Lower East Side but not too far...good Thai food, inexpensive, and I think its overlooked because every time I've been in there its been me and the staff. They have a nice back patio that you woud never know about from looking at the front entrance though.

                There's an indian place on 1st ave between 5th and 6th that is BYOB and has a cool outdoor padio in the back. In that cluster of restaurants with all the chili and christmas lights it's the one down a couple of stairs on the left.

                  I'm not 100% sure now, but the two restaurants on the upper level (Panna and the one on the left) are also BYOB. I went to a birthday party there and we broke out the booze. They broke out the crazy Indian 'happy birthday' record.
