What’s the last time you went to a BYOB restaurant in DC?  I know, right? Does that even exist – a Bring Your Own Beer/Wine restaurant in Washington?

In Philadelphia, they’re practically on every block. From the smallest dive with a handful of cramped tables to a fancy restaurant for that special occasion.  Most recently, I tried Lolita, which had BYOT sign out front for bring your own tequila.  An adorable Mexican restaurant with terrific small plates.  And a delicious grilled salmon on top of pureed hearts of palm – who even knew one could puree hearts of palm?

It’s telling that a search for “BYOB” turns up BYOB Philadelphia as an option.  But no DC.

Is it a way around antiquated blue laws?  A way to bypass City Hall payoffs?  Who knows?  But it’s a great deal for the restaurant goers – in other towns.
