BYOB in the greater Boston area?

OnlyHereForTheFood Jul 28, 2013 08:27 AM

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

      KItchen on Common in Belmont is BYO, with a good wine store right next door.

        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.

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

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

                    I think Sweet Basil in Needham has BYOB.

                        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...
