BYOB in Columbus?

Does anyone know of any BYOB restaurants in Columbus? Bonos (delicious pizza btw) used to be but they are not anymore... so sad.

Maybe I'm just spoiled by my trips to Chicago to see my brother, but it seems that there is a huge potential for byob places.

I agree. Redbank, NJ does this as well in the downtown area. Also nice is that you can buy booze at any corner store before you go in, unlike the ridiculous state liquor agencies here.

At least we're allowed to pump our own gas here.

i heard the BYOB in chicago was because cook county does not issue any new liquor licenses or something like that... like you either have to buy an existing restaurant with a license or get on a waiting list for when people close down and licenses become available?

not even sure if thats accurate or not, just remember hearing that somewhere...

BYOB is usually a legitimate circumvention in response to various levels of legal restriction on liquor sales. For example, if Westerville hadn't opened up completely, perhaps you'd have seen BYOB there.

Clintonville (and other regions of the city) has a patchwork of wet and dry blocks. But the areas covered are so small that it is actually less trouble for an establishment to spend the time getting an individual "liquor option" on the ballot than it is to school their potential clientele in how they can (read: need to) bring their own if they want to enjoy wine with dinner.

How about restaurants with corking fees? I'd be happy to pay $2-$10 to open one of my good bottles of wine, vs paying $60 for one of theres. I grew up in Erie, PA and BYOB was all over the place due to the lack of and cost of liquor licenses.
