BYOB in the greater Boston area?

I'm looking for an updated list of BYOB restaurants in the greater Boston area, specifically around Woburn/Tewksbury/Lowell. Any recommendations would be much appreciated, thank you! - Lindsey

      Except where there is, like these 4 in groton - a stretch for "greater boston", but not that far from lowell.
      Do other small towns in the outskirts issue carry in permits? I seem to remember one in marblehead years ago...

        Yes, they do. $5 corkage last time I was there.

      2. several places in Winthrop are BYOB, DeParma's, Rossetti's, Alia. Depends on each city.

        1. not lowell, but close. Acton, two restaurants: Il Forno for Italian and in west Acton, Twin Seafood.

          1. Tokyo Taipei and Central Grill in Woburn

                1. in lowell, most places without a license will allow you to bring booze in. we frequently bring wine or beer to viet thai. they provide a wine key and glasses if you want.

                  cambridge/brookline/boston DO NOT allow byob.

                  1. Thank you for all of the suggestions! This is very helpful.

                    1. La Posada (mexican) in Arlington Heights

                      And i remember a friend saying they did BYO in belmont but i forget where
