    Cafe Andiamo in Johnston just over the Providence line - has great food and is BYOB. You should make a reservation they tend to get crowded.

      I just read on another board that Pizzico on Hope St has BYOB on Monday nights.

        Yeah, I messed that up. The BYO option is Sunday, with Monday nights being 50% off wine nights. Oopsie.

            Guido's Restaurant at 100 Hope Street is a small Italian place (across the street from Rue De L'Espoir) that I personally really like (some don't) that is often quiet on weeknights and accordingly could accommodate a group. I recommend their special sauce.

            These are BYOB but may not be appropriate cuisines depending on what you're serving:
            - Solomon's Market, 404 Benefit Street (Korean)
            - Sakura, 231 Wickenden Street (Sushi, etc)

            And yes, I went to Sawaddee Thai at 93 Hope St recently and it was BYOB.

              Casa Christine, except I can't really recommend it. The owner is such a b*tch she makes your night truly unpleasant. Some will say she's 'a hoot' and that's part of the fun, but I don't see it that way. Not sure what BYOBs are left in Providence.....Apsara, asian in the south end I think?

                Apsara is still BYOB. There's a store nearby that sells Thai beer, too.

                  Is Swaddaddee the Thai place on Hope Street still BYOB?

                  I am remembering Blue Elephant on Wickenden as BYOB but maybe I am just misremembering? Or they were in the process of getting their liquor license? Well, perhaps Blue Elephant.
