BYOB restaurants are rare gems theses days. We love them not only because we don’t have to pay $12 for a ho-hum glass of wine, but because they give us a chance to get creative with our food and drink pairings.
Here are a few of our favorite local BYOBs, and our top picks for perfect pairings.
Light-bodied, rustic reds will compliment a wide range of French bistro fare, from Salade Lyonnaise to Steak au Poive, and everything in between.
Italian: Piccola Strada
Chooose crisp, mineral-driven white wines to match seafood dishes and reds with firm acidity to offset tart tomato-based sauces
Delicate whites with just a touch of residual sugar balance the sweetness found in many Thai sauces, but won’t overwhelm more subtle vegetarian or fish dishes.
