Google Maps mashups in NYC: BYOB and MYOM

BYOB Map of New York Restaurants - Food and wine blog Amuse-Bouche has established a handy Google Map for the New York City restaurant goer. It pin-points NYC's BYOB (bring your own bottle) restaurants and has been compiled by first hand visits and second hand reports. The map key describes the color of the pins: Green is for "Ongoing BYOB policies", Purple marks "Free corkage on some nights", Yellow indicates "Awaiting a liquor license" and Orange indicates "Corkage under $10". Jon Bonné, who runs the blog and map, accepts updates by email as well.
