Wine stores and BYOB restaurants may be the most perfect pairing in the food world – as inseparable as Sauternes and foie gras, as complementary as Thai stick and Funyuns. As the number of affordable wines from every region continues to explode, the marriage is only getting better. Hence this week’s Bar Buzz identifies six wine stores and six BYOB restaurants, all so close together that only a monk could fail to see the logic connecting them. From the pleasures of Two Buck Chuck at Angelica Kitchen, to Moscato d’Asti at Falai Panetteria, let us lead you by the hand to places where the wine markup is exactly zero.
