BYOB Hartford Area

One of my favorite places to go is Elephant Trail in Avon and I love that it is BYOB. I was hoping there may be some other suggestions for places that are BYOB with great food.

      Dorothy and Leroy's Cajun & Southern restaurant in Windsor Locks. The Cajun menu only kicks in Thurs.-Sat, I believe. I have never left there hungry and it's one of the few places (that I know of) that serves collared greens and fried okra in the area

        we love the Pond House in West Hartford. Even though they have a liquor license now, they still allow you to bring your own. I think the corkage fee is $5. Also, Somewhere in Bangkok in Plainville is wonderful. It is some of the best Thai food in the area.

          Pazzo's in Glastonbury, though their food has gone seriously downhill in recent years.

          Nunu's in Colchester may be a bit far out for you but has interesting food (Italian) and is BYOB.

            agree on Pazzo, and I think if I remember corectly their corkage costs were fairly high...but I haven't been there in quite a while...

              I know Pazzo in Rocky Hill sells wine now, and I think the same is true of the Glastonbury location. That makes BYOB there no different than anyplace. Just pay corkage.
