Middle Eastern Food with BYOB in the East Village or LES?

I am looking for some excellent Middle Eastern/Lebanese food that allows BYOB (bring your own bottle) in the East Village or LES. Any suggestions?

  1. There isn't much in the way of excellent Middle Eastern/Lebanese food in that neighborhood and it's even harder to find some place that is BYOB. You might check the new Lebanese restaurant that opened on Avenue A near 13th, I believe.

    1. Last I heard, Moroccan restaurant Elyssa Dido on Orchard was still byob. Haven't been there myself but have intended to try it.

        Boswell, we went recently and it was still byob. We have been several times. I think I posted a report.

      2. If you're looking for any type of cuisine with BYOB, go here.

            Angelica Kitchen is great, but note that it's vegetarian.

              And it's not Middle-Eastern unless serving vegan hummus counts.

          2. Thanks for the information! I will look into these and let you know how it goes!
