15 Delicious BYOB Restaurants In NYC

Save your money for the important things, like more alcohol.

Posted on

Going out to eat in New York is delicious and fun, but paying restaurant prices for booze can make dinner ~way too expensive~.

Fortunately, there are some places that will still let you BYOB, aka swing by the bodega for beer to bring to dinner, aka the actual answer to all of our prayers.

So I asked BuzzFeed's NYC editors where they BYOB in the city to save money. Here's where to go so you can have your drinks with a side of food — all without breaking your budget. Enjoy!


8. Kuma Inn for Thai, Filipino, and Southeast Asian food

Where: 113 Ludlow St., 2nd Floor, Lower East Side, Manhattan (Note: There's a $5 corkage fee.)

—Maggie Schultz and Christine Byrne


12. Queens Comfort for comfort food

Where: 4009 30th Ave., Astoria, Queens

"Expect a line, but this is one of the most fun, outrageous brunches I've been to in New York — and it's BYOB for dinner, too! Get the breakfast burrito (it has tater tots inside) or one of their homemade doughnuts, and enjoy the DJ and '80s and '90s memorabilia decor." —Megan Paolone
