From 2009:
Packed with sweet, caramelized onions slow-cooked in a rich chicken- and beef-based stock, this new BYO's onion soup gratinee makes a stunning entrance in an antique-ish crock capped with a baguette hunk and lightly bronzed layer of Gruy.

From 2010: Even on the hottest day of the summer, we’d be happy as clams with this quaint BYO’s short-rib boeuf bourguignon and flavorful onion soup gratinée. In this comfortable and unpretentious space, you can enjoy a meal that’s as formal—or informal—as you’d like. And there’s no corkage fee.

From 2013: At this spirited place, you'll discover a pitch-perfect menu of French classics, each presented with sheer refinement and enticing rustic touches. Keep it traditional with your bottle of choice, and enjoy country-style pork pâté with champagne mustard, escargots in sweet butter, Boeuf Bourguignon, and chocolate pot de crème.

From 2014: Classic French cooking makes this neighborhood favorite one of the best bistros in the region, with impeccable steak frites, boeuf bourguignon, coq au vin and bouillabaisse. The fact that it’s a BYOB sweetens the deal.

From 2015: Enjoy a textbook example of the classic Provençal seafood stew at this charming BYOB. Seared scallops, mussels, poached salmon, clams and prawns commune in a flawless paprika rouille that lends itself to dipping. So be sure to order the toasted baguette slices.
