As I'm going through old posts, I notice that there are a lot of mention of BYOB in Philly. First can you tell me what is it about the liquor laws that makes it different and seems to spawn all these restaurants that allow BYOB?
Second, I'm visiting from out of town, and staying just a few blocks north of Rittenhouse Square (I'm not familiar with area names) without a car, so I'm dependent on public transportation and walking. Can you suggest some good, casual BYOBs that is easy access to that area? I noticed Farmicia and liked the menu, but if you can think of other places, I'm open to suggestions. Thank you!
