50 Best Restaurants in Philadelphia: 2013 » bibou_philadelphia_best_restaurants
The menu at Bibou is short, but every plate coming out of the kitchen at this cozy, inviting BYO is a classic looked at with a modern eye. While French technique might be the Tao of every high-end kitchen that matters, chef Pierre Calmels’s kitchen is here to remind
us of all the reasons why French food still matters in this nouvelle American age.
What to Order: The cassoulet is the best in the city, but the truly le gendary dish here is the pied de porc—a braised pig’s foot stuffed with foie gras and French lentils.
Pro Tip: Bibou is cash-only, so don’t forget your folding money.
