    From my past experiences, all of them are BYOB. If there are any doubt, just come in and speak to the staff (a few dollars corking fee might resolve any concerns). Thus I recommend you pick a restaurant solely based on how you like their food.

              here's a bunch of places keeping in mind you guys dont eat seafood

              yunnan kitchen: stick to what i got although i think its only open for dinner

              china blue: maybe try china blue? haven't been there yet but looks promising and it won't be a total crap hole

              noodle village: i've been liking noodle village lately. get their dumplings, spicy fish balls, cuttlefish ball noodle soup, decent wonton noodle soup, clay pot rice is decent

              fung tu: havent been here, but looks kind of interesting

              cafe hong kong: i like cafe hong kong, but the alot of the good dishes have seafood

              spicy village

              ny noodletown

              its kind of sad, im starting to run out of places to tell people of where to go in chinatown bc the quality is falling fairly rapidly, its always for like single dishes now

      Agree with previous most anywhere will let you BYO.

      Except for congee village.

      What is your aged reisling? I love reisling- esp with chinese food- yet i don't see many aged bottles. Please update us on how it is and where you eat!
      Happy new year
