BYOB Japanese

rushbikes Feb 4, 2014 12:46 PM

Looking to start a comprehensive list of BYOB Japanese restaurants in NYC. I've been to a couple that fly under the radar and are fantastic.

Who wants to contribute to the list?

    There is Poke on the UES
    Seki allows BYO with a fee

              Kumain ( Kuma Inn) means let's eat in tagalog.
              They serve Filipino, Thai and Vietnamese dishes. The lechon used to be prepared by a Hispanic chef and it tasted more Puerto Rican than Filipino. Anyway, no Japanese food here that I know of.

            I'm not sure if Bugs ever got their liquor license. But last I went they didn't have one.
            Katsuei in Park Slope is BYOB

              Katsuei is no longer BYOB (at least they now serve alcohol, they may allow BYOB).
