Tanoshi Sushi....no liquor license???

I read on the webpage that they have no liquor license. If that's still true when I visit in December, can I bring a bottle of wine or saki to have with dinner?

      For me, sushi without Suntory is like hamburger without the bun. Still enjoyable, but missing the full experience.

        technically, no. A restaurant must have a license to allow you to BYO... but call and see if they are not technical

          And if they let you BYOB, please do not post about it (publicly) here.

              "Applicants should be aware that allowing BYOB without a license may jeopardize their chances for approval of their license."

                Good to know. In Texas, you can bring wine to have with dinner if the restaurant doesn't have license. After living in NOLA for a long time, I find other states liquor laws a bit strange.

                  Strange compared to NOLA?? home of the "drive-thru Hurricane stand".... I suppose anyplace else seems restrictive.
