The Last Standing BYOB spots

There are no sweeter words in the dining experience than “Bring your own beverage.” Yes BYOB is a little piece of heaven that allows you to bring your favorite wine or beer to accompany your meal. And these days, that acronym seems like a unicorn.  Luckily there are still a few spots in Astoria, LIC and Sunnyside that are letting you live your best and booziest life!
