Best BYOB restaurants in Philly 'TODAY'...

I'll be returning for a weekend of culinary delights and am very aware that in the restaurant business things change constantly, so I ask 'again' what do you consider the best BYOB for 3 days/nights of eating well? I've been to Bibou [worst service ever, no thanks] and they treated us like they did us a favor, Melograna [enjoyed], and a few others that I cannot recall their names at the moment. What do you think?

      For 3 BYO dinners, excluding Bibou, I'd do Will, Kanella, and Koo Zee Doo.

    2. Cochon was great, I couldn't recall name.

      1. Matyson continues to be one of Philly's best BYOBs.

        1. It's a real shame you had a terrible experience at bibou. I've been over a dozen times with the opposite experience but if I were in your shoes I'd probably scratch it off my list too.

          Cochon is great and so is Kanella. Went to Matyson for years but stopped when bibou opened.

          We definitely want to try Will so if you go write a review.

          1. I'm surprised you weren't treated well at Bibou. Every time I've been, they were wonderful. In any case, my byob choices would be: Littlefish, Will and Modo Mio.
