Bibou Review

Tiny Bibou is one of the city's best BYOBs, as evidenced by how many tables are occupied by French natives who'd otherwise seem out of place in this tiny restaurant on this residential South Philly block. The other proof is in the intensely flavorful food, from perfectly crisped scallops to pig's feet stuffed with foie gras. The restaurant is a true maman et père—Charlotte will charm you, and her husband, chef Pierre Calmel, will emerge from the kitchen to ask how you liked the sweetbreads. Wednesday through Saturday is à la carte; Sunday is prix fixe—$45 for four courses.
