Whether you bring a bottle of 1997 Opus One to the table, or a favorite local vintage, dining at a restaurant with your own wine can be liberating. Few New York City restaurants permit guests to BYO, however. But we’ve uncovered a handful of good dining options that permit you to bring your own.
Cube Sushi, located on a lively block in the Lower East Side, is known for its fresh, inexpensive sushi. Bring a bottle of 2010 Avinyo Vi d’Agulla Muscat and see why this crisp, spritzy white matches perfectly with a Cube 63 roll.
At famed Brooklyn pizzeria Di Fara, you can have your pizza Margherita and your bottle of wine, too. Try a refreshing Lambrusco such as Vecchia Modena Cleto Chiarli.
The Upper West Side’s A Café serves organic French-Caribbean fare, including jerk duck leg confit that begs for a bottle of 2008 Bone-Jolly Gamay Noir.
Casa Adela, a Puerto Rican mainstay in Alphabet City, serves garlicky rotisserie chicken worthy of a slightly weighty rosé like the 2010 Bisson Ciliegiolo from Liguria.
The West Village café Tartine lets you bring a bottle of earthy and bright 2009 Gérard Brisson Gamay to sip while you nibble on a croque monsieur, et voila!—you’re at a sidewalk café in Paris.
