Chelmsford/Andover BYO Business Dinner

Can you recommend any restaurants in the Chelmsford or Andover, MA areas that would be good for a nice business dinner and allow BYO for wine? It is okay if there is a corkage fee.
Chelmsford/Andover is the preferred area, but we would consider something a little further away.

    I'm not actually sure whether either of these spots would accommodate, but you might try Cassis Bistro in Andover (www.cassis-bistro.com) or the Left Bank, which has a pretty well-respected wine program, in Tyngsboro, MA (http://www.stonehedgeinnandspa.com/le...).

      Left Bank said no. I'll check with Cassis Bistro.

        I checked with the person who organized the dinner. She said they ended up going to the Andover Inn. They didn't get to BYO. They considered Cassis Bistro but had been there for another business dinner (no BYO there either) and were looking for something else. Thanks for the suggestions. The VP has a wine cellar he would like to be able to share when he has business dinners. These happen fairly frequently so if there are others suggestions for BYO places, I'd still welcome them.

          For future reference - Mass law prohibits BYO for any restaurant that has a liquor license. Some towns may have further BYO restrictions.
