5 "BYOB" restaurants in San Francisco.
True BYOB spots (AKA no corkage fee) are hard to find. True BYOB spots with food that doesn’t suck are even rarer. Here are the places where you can show up with your own bottle and spend that extra money on a meal you actually want to eat.
House of Prime Rib in Nob Hill is where you should go celebrate with a lot of meat and large bottles of wine.
Emilia’s is the best pizza in the Bay Area. Getting it is a huge pain in the ass. But it is 100% worth it.
Pakwan comes through in the clutch with long hours, reasonable pricing, a large space, and potent spices.
Zazie is a Cole Valley institution at brunch, but don’t sleep on dinner here either.
