Restaurant closest to the Domain that is BYOB or "allows corkage"?

What restaurant is closest to the Domain that is BYOB or "allows corkage"? (and what is the difference?)

From this thread, it sounds like that is Uchiko, which is not close at all.

Explanation in that thread from Chowhounder Andrew Zachary on why few restaurants can allow Corkage:

"Not much flexibility in this. If a restaurant serves hard liquor, they cannot allow corkage. The Texas ABC is very strict about this rule; why, I do not know."

  1. The closest I know to the Domain that allows you to bring your own wine and provides corkscrew and glasses, and doesn't, to my knowledge, charge a corkage fee, is Sunflower on Ohlen and 183 in the Target shopping center. Its my favorite Vietnamese restaurant, and is, in fact, my favorite place in Austin to eat out. If you'd like recommendations on what to order just check out any of my past posts, I seem to fixate on Sunflower.

    1. Foreign & Domestic on 53rd is BYOB. G'raj Mahal is one of my favorites as well yet they are downtown. Any other suggestions?
