Special Celebration or Much Needed Night Out: Top 5 BYOBs in Manayunk

Going out to dinner can sometimes be a pricey affair when you add on the costs of a nice bottle of wine or a few cocktails or beers. Lucky for us, Manayunk has several top notch BYOB restaurants to help take the stress off of your wallet. If you have a special celebration coming up or just need a night out on the town, visit one of these top five BYOB restaurants named by

Full lineup courtesy of below:

Laxmi’s Indian Grille - Located at 4425 Main Street, Laxmi’s Indian Grill offers an abundance of vegetarian-friendly menu items, such as samosas and chana masala.

Chabaa Thai Bistro - Chef Moon Krapugthong’s food is elaborate and delicately prepared, with the casual, relaxing setting at Chabaa Thai Bistro (4371 Main Street) perfect for any occasion.

Yanako - Just down the street at 4255 Main Street, Chabaa’s sister restaurant, Yanako, is Krapugthong’s take on traditional Japanese and sushi in a Zen-like setting. (Our recent review on Yanako here.)

Han Dynasty - Travel to 4356 Main Street to take in Han Dynasty‘s Szechuan cuisine. The setting is relatively low-frills, but the food is far from generic.

Jake’s and Cooper’s Wine Bar - Jake’s and Cooper’s Wine Bar, located at 4365 Main Street, is not a BYOB.  But, as long as you’re eating in the dining room, you can bring your own for a $15 corkage fee, which isn’t unreasonable if your favorite bottle didn’t make it onto the wine list.
