BYOB in downtown/uptown/knox henderson?

Not sure I'd Dallas county even allows BYOB, but if so, are there any semi-nice places in the downtown/uptown/knox hendesn area?

  1. Easy one.
    Farnatchi in Knox Park. Great food! 2 doors away from Fadi's (I think, also BYOB).
    Urbano on Fitzhugh at Bryan. Just a few doors west of Jimmy's market on the corner. Very popular!

      +1 for Urbano. Great food corner. Jimmy's (you can buy your wine or beer there), Urbano and Spicemans. Also across the street Mai's Vietnamese and Dallasite for a burger.

      But the correct answer here is obviously Urbano.

      Mai's Vietnamese Restaurant
      4812 Bryan St Ste 100, Dallas, TX 75204

    2. Kozy Kitchen on McKinney, just south of Armstrong (one block S. of Knox) is BYOB. We took wine with us to dinner a few weeks back. Service is friendly, if not terribly polished. I'm sort of on the fence about the food. They are very well meaning, but the execution is a bit hit or miss. I'm going back tonight (again bringing my own wine) for a follow up visit. We'll see if I just caught the kitchen on an off night or whether hit or miss is par for the course at this place.

      P.S. If you're bringing good wine, you may want to bring your won stemware. What they had looked sort of low mid end restaurant standard.

      1. Campania on McKinney Avenue just North of Lemmon.

        ETA: A lot of people love this place, but I should add that I'm not a fan. But it is BYOB.

        1. This is not exactly in your specified area, but by far the best BYOB experience right now is 48nights.

            All the suggestions here are good, but for upscale: Urbano and Farnatchi (although less upscale).

            Momo's used to have $15 corkage

            400 N Greenville Ave, Richardson, TX 75081

              Yeah, 48 Nights is only about 12-15 miles from where they want to be.

                I don't know where you think 48 nights is, but it's about 2-4 miles from downtown/uptown. It's 7-8 miles from henderson/lower greenville. It's closer to downtown than henderson is.
