Great BYOB places?
Hi! I've been looking for a fun BYOB place to go with a group of 10-12 people. We're looking for a fun, relaxed place for a group of old friends to catch up. Much of what I've found seems to be tiny places that don't accept reservations-- anyone have suggestions for a group friendly place? Any cuisine suggestions welcomed, although I'd prefer to not do sushi unless it's a really good place (I already have lots of sushi favorites in the city, so I don't want to eat bad sushi just for BYOB!)
Thanks in advance!
I don't know if they can accommodate a group of your size - they might in the back of the dining room, but Square Meal is one of my favorites these days - we just had dinner there on Friday night, and the Thai calamari salad is as good as ever and desserts are always amazing. They don't have a liquor license yet, so it's byob and no corkage. I've posted numerous times about this place - see the posts that come up when you click on the "place". It's 92nd between 5th and Madison.

They are right next to Nightingale Bamford, but I was told that they plan to get a liquor license, but would offer a limited selection, and still allow byob w/o a corkage charge. Doesn't strike me as the kind of place that underaged girls could get served, but I'll inquire further about their plans. I see the man who runs Yura next door when I walk the dog in the early a.m.
Good sushi options are Poke on UES or Cube 63 downtown
Other good BYOs (with corkage)
Sip Sak Turkish
Peking Duck House (Midtown)
i would check out phoenix garden. it is off 2nd on 40th or 41st. it isn't a place for atmosphere but good food, no corkage fee and can definitely handle a large group. the people who run it are so nice.
