Growing up in New Jersey and going to college in Philly spoiled me. Oh how I love a good BYO restaurant where you don’t have to worry about getting ripped off by insane bottle upcharges. What a shame that there are so few BYOs around NYC.
Though they are far few and between, they do exist and the following is a list of New York City restaurants that allow BYO with no corkage fee. I will caveat that many restaurants in NYC do have some sort of BYO policy with a corkage fee tacked-on if you call and ask specifically, but these listed below are strictly BYO with no corkage fee every day of the week.
Know of another BYO restaurant I need to add to the map? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
