to Eater, my new neighborhood gastropub, EU, having failed to get its liquor
license, has now been barred even from operating as a BYOB: the full story is
unclear, but it seems as though the police busted the police for having any
liquor at all in the establishment, even if it wasn’t served by the restaurant
itself. Thus are my dreams
But Eater raises an interesting question: are any NYC BYOBs, strictly
speaking, legal? Do the police just turn a blind eye, or is there some kind
of BYOB license one can/should get?
UPDATE: Eater has all the answers.
