NYC’s 7 Best “Bring Your Own Bottle” Restaurants

There is no shortage of upscale restaurants with impressive drinks menus in New York City, but what about those of us that want to take our favorite drink to enjoy with our meal? BYOB (“bring your own bottle/booze” for those in the know) has increased in popularity in recent years, and we’ve chosen our seven favorite establishments for you all to enjoy. As always guys and gals, be careful of those corking fees, they’ll catch up on you.

Hillstone Midtown

  • Where: 153 E 53rd St
  • Ratings:
    • Yelp 4/5
    • Google 4.4/5
    • TripAdviser 4.5/5

This Midtown eatery offers handcrafted sushi, USDA Prime steaks and hand-crafted cocktails and Live jazz. Be careful when bringing your own bottles though, The first bottle is free, but there’s a $25 corking fee after that. 

Wondee Siam

  • Where: 792 9th Ave
  • Ratings:
    • Yelp 4/5
    • Google 4.3/5
    • TripAdviser 4.5/5

If the ratings above aren’t selling you on the quality here, then maybe the friendly attitude on BYOB will. This Hell’s Kitchen Thai Restaurant is a must for fans of spice.

This Chinese cafe serves Henan eats; hand-pulled noodles, pork pancakes & spicy chicken, and it’s absolutely delicious. Before heading out there with a group of friends and a bag full of bottles, the BYOB is dependant on each guest spending at least $10.

    • FourSuare 8.2/10

Yuan opened this year in the former Biang! space and has a lax BYOB policy. This Chinese Guilin-style rice noodle restaurant is the perfect place to both cause and cure a hangover.

Bhatti Indian Grill

Celebratory closing dinner for an awesome past six months with our amazing intern, Pearl ??

This Northern Indian eatery has a rather strict BYOB policy, but for fast of Indian cuisine, it’s a must. You can’t bring beer, and there is a strict two bottle minimum per table. grab a bottle and enjoy grilled meats and kebabs cooked on an open-fire grill.

Peking Duck House
  • Where: 28 Mott St
  • Ratings:
    • Yelp 3.5/5
    • Google 3.9/5
    • TripAdviser 4/5

At $48 per duck, this is a splurge for Chinatown, but carved tableside with fanfare, it’s well worth the price… especially if you head there with friends and a few bottles of wine.

Panna II Garden

Possibly the worst food we’ve ever had but worth it to feel like Xmas in August ?? #nyc #westillfeelsick

  • Where: 93 1st Avenue
  • Ratings:
    • Yelp 3/5
    • Google 3.4/5
    • TripAdviser 4/5

Known for their Indian food, and Instagramable decor, Panna II Garden is maybe the most festive looking BYOB restaurant on this list.
