Can someone please explain the liquor license thing in Philly?

I've been reading about all the BYOB restaurants in Philly and someone told me that it's cumbersome to obtain a license to sell wine so a lot of restaurants don't bother.

We have reservations at Vetri's, Matyson's and Bookbinders. Will we be able to order a drink at any of these? We usually like to have a drink before dinner and wine with dinner. I'm fine with bringing in the wine, but do we need to bring in a cocktail as well?

We're staying at the Marriott Downtown by the convention center. Is there a wine store nearby?

(Forgive the stupid questions...we live in New Orleans where even the taco stands sell alchohol)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
