As one of the more pricey areas of Manhattan, dining out in Upper East Side can easily get expensive, especially when indulging in a nice wine bottle or two. So how do you cut costs without cutting back?
The neighborhood is home to quite a few restaurants that allow you to bring your own wine (BYOW). While restaurants typically charge a corkage fee, there are some that welcome patrons to bring their own bottle free of charge. Let’s break down Upper East Side restaurants with no corkage fee.
