Drink More, Spend Less
Nothing says romance like a bottle (or box) of wine, and Chicago’s restaurant scene makes it easy to keep your beverage total low with an array of BYOB spots. So find your nearest Restaurant with a Bring Your Own Policy next time you think about eating out in Chicago.
Coast Sushi Bar
This BYOB favorite has been serving sushi to the people of Bucktown for well over a decade, and aren’t showing any sign of slowing down. ( Note: Sushi also taste better when you’re not paying for cocktails, so head to Coast).
If you’re looking to savor South American flavors at the Argentine Steakhouse while sipping your own bottle of red wine, head to Tango Sur for a romantic night out.
This Mexican Restaurant is a good place to grab drinks with some pals, while sharing some Mexican shared plates feast. ( Note: Mixers include Topo Chico, virgin sangria, house limeade and more).
Butcher & the Burger
Nothing goes better with a burger then some beer. So when you stop by Butchers, make sure you bring some beer.
90 Miles Cuban Cafe
Snag a spot on the colorful four-seasons patio and bring the booze necessary to complete a pitcher of mojitos or sangria, because this authentic Cuban eatery offers house-made mixes for both.
Go 4 Food
Head to Chinatown for a chili fusion crab fix; wash it down with a bottle of suds plucked from your private stash.
Sun Wah BBQ
The peking duck is outstanding so why not pair it with an amber ale? A $10 corkage fee applies.
WEST ROGERS PARK
The Angry Crab
Get down and dirty with Cajun spiced seafood by the pound, and kick the heat with whatever will get you buzzing.
