IMG_3631We decided to go to Will BYOB , a modern french restaurant in South Philly, for my birthday, because I had been wanting to try it and an old Temple friend used to be the GM there. It is small  but cozy inside with about 7 or 8 tables, with a simple modern decoration style (terrariums in the front windows !). To start they put a Happy Birthday message on each of our menus which was a nice surprise, and really personalized our meal ! Our server was so nice and extremely knowledgeable, he even told us to ask more questions if we had them about the ingredients and cooking styles. We did and he knew all the answers, he told us exactly how multiple dishes were made and just provided a wonderful experience.  I apologize that the pictures are so dark, I only had my I phone which either completely whited everything out or took really bad quality dark pictures (you see which one I went with).  To start we had the Foie Gras, Whole hen of the woods mushroom (my favorite), and beef tartare all delicious. Entrees were the Short Rib, Duck Breast (my favorite), Oil Poached Albacore Tuna , and the Parisian Gnocchi all delicious again. For dessert we did the Pot de Creme (amazing, you have to try), Chocolate Ganache (good but I expected it to have more melty chocolate), and a special cheese (apparently it goes well with anything and was served alongside a black garlic sauce). BYOB, great service, reasonable prices, awesome food, all in all great experience, I would definitely recommend this and go back !
