The BYOB Well Runs Dry at Motorino

By

Sadness: Youll no longer be allowed to tote wine to Williamsburgs most popular BYOB destination. A general manager at Motorino tells us it doesnt want to put its liquor-license application in jeopardy, since its now in the final stages (approval is expected in the next weeks) obviously a result of those Brooklyn BYOB seminars (read: SLA intimidation). Were told other restaurants in the neighborhood have been made to wait five or six months for a liquor license which makes the new BYOB enforcement especially painful. No word on what the corner wine shop will do with its Motovino rack.
