PHILADELPHIA, PA - The bring-your-own-bottle restaurant has picked up in Philly more than a decade ago when a steady stream of chefs with a do-it-yourself sensibility and the belief that great food is enough to attract loyal diners keeps the concept fresh.
Philadelphia's Guide to BYOB
Philly's restaurant patrons understand the value of picking up their own wine at a nearby liquor store and enjoying it at the table without a corkage fee. Often, BYOBs are owned and operated by couples, making for a personal, intimate experience that would be hard for a bigger-budget operation to replicate.
With more than 200 such restaurants to choose from (and counting), one could easily visit a restaurant every night for almost an entire year without ever having to ask for a wine list.
