BYOB, what's the law? (LA restaurant question.)

PeterL | Jun 17, 2011 10:34 AM

I am posting here because there is a discussion at a different web site regarding the legality of bringing your own bottle to a restaurant. Seems there is a restaurant in LA that would let you BYO with no corkage fee. The catch is that the restaurant does not have a liquor license. Someone posted that this is illegal and the restaurant can be fined and never will get a license if they are caught doing this. But the BYO policy is prominently posted on the restaurant's own web site.

So what's the law here? Is the restaurant doing something illegal?
