What is BYOB?
Bring Your Own Bottle – Philly is known for it’s BYO restaurants. We never charge a corkage fee and we offer many Margarita and Sangria Mixers for your Tequilas and Wines. For brunch we’re planning on Bloody Mary mixers… if you’re bringing the vodka give us a head’s up (phone call/reservation) and we’ll have it and the celery and the hot sauce… ready.
For margaritas we like and recommend Silver/Blanco Tequila, Anejo (aged) Tequila, and Repsado (rested) Tequilas. Or if you’re going rustic try Mezcal tequila’s crazy cousin – and save us the worm please!
Some good articles on Tequila:
For wines we like fruity wines the play well with Mexican spice… Gewürztraminer and Riesling come to mind.
Other options include Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Pinot Grigio.
We also own Trio BYOB, Trio is located just one block north on Brown and Taney streets. Situated on three floors it serves Pan Asian cuisine with a heavy Thai influence. It also features al fresco dining on our second floor deck and a private dining room for groups up to 40 guests. Check out www.TrioBYOB.com for our menu and more information.
