Dedicated exclusively to the Bring-Your-Own-Bottle (BYOB) landscape in Chicagoland, this indispensable purse-sized guidebook lists nearly 300 BYOBs located in and around the city and suburbs. Featuring restaurants that t only allow but encourage customers to bring their own wine, beer, or spirits, this updated edition reflects the continued growth of the BYOB trend in Chicago, as more people are learning to appreciate the savings and personal enjoyment of bringing their own bottles of wine, beer, or spirits to dinner. Handy indices listing restaurants by location and cuisine are coupled with insightful information on food-pairing guidelines, BYOB etiquette, and local liquor laws to help restaurant-goers create a perfect dining experience.
