America's Best BYO Restaurants

Bonsoiree

Courtesy of Bonsoirée

Bonsoirée, Chicago

In Shin Thompson’s hands, canonical French cuisine pops as he infuses classic recipes (scallops baked in the shell; venison sous vide) with unorthodox Japanese flavors (ponzu aioli; soba spaetzle). The chef’s innovative tasting menus have earned Bonsoirée a Michelin star and a devout following in Chicago, where insiders vie for spots at the restaurant’s Saturday “underground” dinners. (Tip: opt for the easier-to-snag midweek reservations.)

BYO: Bring a bottle (or two) of your favorite vintage. Before you go, check the website for wine-pairing recommendations.

(2728 W. Armitage Ave.; 773-486-7511; dinner for two $170.)
