The B.Y.O. Guide to Philadelphia

The bring-your-own trend is ripe in Philadelphia, where hot spots are waiving that pesky corking fee


Come with us on a culinary tour of the City of Brotherly Love. A local Philadelphia food lover entices our taste buds with the city's best B.Y.O.'s. 

Start at one of the most acclaimed brunch spots in the city, Sabrina's Café. Known for excellent food and generous portions, this crowded spot with locations in the Italian Market and Art Museum

area is a must try. The Farm and the Fisherman brings the farm-to-table concept to life with a rotating menu, fresh and locally sourced ingredients, and a creative spin to seasonal dishes. (Photo courtesy of Flickr/roboppy) 

For excellent French cuisine in a quaint, bistro setting, Bibou has it all — great service, impeccable food, and a warm and cozy atmosphere that makes every visit memorable. Reservations are sometimes tough to come by, so plan ahead. 

There are almost too many choices to satisfy your Italian cravings but if you're looking for an outstanding home cooked meal, August is the place. The dining room is petite but the food and attention make you feel like home. And seafood lovers shouldn't miss Little Fish. The bottom line is the fresh fish creatively prepared at a good value. 

Now, grab a few bottles and indulge.
