Flavor, the best BYOB in Dallas?

I am always interested in restaurants that allow BYOB (at a reasonable corkage). While a number of restaurant do allow BYOB either the food or atmosphere leaves something to be desired. The best restaurant that I have found in Dallas thus far is Flavor restaurant on Skillman. I have been a handful of times thus far and everything I have tried on the menu is excellent. There is classic Thai food with some Pan-Asian that is also quite good. The most notable dish I have had thus far is the crispy salmon with avocado relish. Does anyone else have any other suggestions that offer BYOB that serve high quality food?

  1. Last night we went to Zorba's in Plano at Park and Preston. This is an excellent Greek place very authnic, for me it seems very cozy and I like the atmosphere. You can byob and they only charge 2.50 for corkage fee

    1. Oh, another great place is in old town Carrollton. It is called Amecci it is very upscale Italian . The chef is wonderful. Cozy atmosphere very small so make reservations.

      1. I agree that Flavor is quite a find for BYOB. I know many Vietnamese/Chinese places that allow BYOB, but like you mentioned - atmosphere can be lacking.

        I can think of three places that I've heard have a nice atmosphere and BYOB, but I've never been. Maybe someone else has:

        Sevan G&G Cafe

              Make sure you call ahead on those listed on Guidelive. They are not always good at updating when a restaurant obtains a liquor license and is no longer BYOB.
