Reading the recent posting of "Where do you want to go in 2011" got me thinking that my most disappointing meal in a long time was Bibou. It wasn't the worst meal of 2010 but our expectations were high and they weren't met. After reading Robert Parker's review of Bibou, having several friends tell us how wonderful their meals were, and seeing this "Where do you want to go" posting, I convinced my SO to give Bibou another try...and we are! We have reservations in January.

I can't remember what our foodie friends had (they are coming too, again) but my SO had a flank steak so tough that it was inedible and he left at least half or more on the plate. Truly. He decided not to say anything to the server as the foodie friends are my friends and he had just met them and didn't want to seem like a complainer. I had a fish dish with a red wine sauce. The fish was really lovely but the red wine sauce fought the fish. There was a 'one time' scallop appetizer that was really amazing and would love to have that again but alas, not likely. I did also enjoy the snail ragout (which I had as my dessert) and thought the daily foie gras was good (but not great). I think one of our friends had the Pied du Porc, which she liked and was glad she tried, but she wouldn't order it again. Can't remember what her husband had except that he thought it was 'okay'.

Here's my question. What did YOU have at Bibou that was outstanding? We would LOVE recommendations!
