Bienmesabe is a casual BYOB Venezuelan restaurant in Ravenswood specializing in gluten-free arepas. The value move here is to order arepas as your entree - we prefer the After Party (roasted pork, gouda cheese, and avocado slices). The pabellon (shredded flank steak over sweet plantains and rice) is also a standout, and the Bienmesabe Sampler is a heavy but tasty appetizer to share. Head to this spot if you’re already in the area with a bottle of wine and a gluten-free friend.

Cho Sun Ok is a long-standing Korean restaurant. The food is great, but the ambience is even better. A BYOB policy doesn’t hurt.
