Bibou is a new French BYO in Philadelphia by the former executive chef at Le Bec Fin. The meal was outstanding. We all had the 7 course tasting menu. The first course was a rabbit pate with a brown mustard. The second course was my favorite -- a scallop dish with watermelon. That was followed by foie gras with raspberries and gingerbread. Next was a Mahi Mahi perfectly cooked over carmelized shallots. Chanterelle mushrooms in a cream sauce with herbs was next. The main course was an outstanding NY Strip in a red wine reduction sauce. The blueberry pie for dessert was out of this world. All in all, there was not a bad course in the bunch. The wines paired beautifully with the food. If you are ever in Philadelphia and need a great BYO, this should be on your list. As homestyle French cooking goes, it does not get much better!
