    Bodeguita Cubana May Not Be Authentic, But the (BYO) Drinks Are Cheap There’s something about a Serbian-run Cuban restaurant that just says “New York.” Maybe that’s one reason that Bodeguita Cubana, introduced by Rob and Robin in this week’s issue, is getting such a warm welcome in the East Village. It’s BYO, with big, breezy French doors, and a menu (here for your browsing enjoyment) filled with various ersatz Cuban sandwiches and specialties, including what the Robs characterize as a “heaping if too chewy helping of ropa vieja.” The “Cuban pizza” (which looks by the menu suspiciously like regular pizza) hasn’t rolled out yet, but there is plenty more to choose from. And given that you can bring your own beer, the place makes a nice pit stop in an increasingly expensive neighborhood.

    Cheap Wine and BYOB Restaurants: A Marriage Made in HeavenWine 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.
