Even though the Michelin Guide is known and recognised for its “star” system, these restaurants represent only 5% of the selection, the rest of which is comprised of good, small, affordably priced establishments.

Among these establishments are the “Bibs,” with the Bib Gourmand symbol for restaurants and the Bib Hotel symbol.

Bib is short for Bibendum, the character created in 1898 from the imagination of the Michelin brothers, André and Edouard, and the pen of cartoonist O’Galop. Over the years, Bib—the one and only Michelin Man—has become the Group’s “mascot.” In the Michelin Guide, Bibendum’s head is a familiar, widely recognised red symbol.

The Michelin UK guide editor Rebecca Burr said:
“The Bib Gourmand awards also reflect the continuing trend for competitively priced, less structured and more flexible dining.

Bibo in Putney is run by chef Chris Beverley and backed by restaurateur Rebecca Mascarenhas. It is open for lunch and dinner every day of the week. There are just nine new BIB Gourmands in London this year and Rebecca told PutneySW15:
"We are thrilled to be amongst one of the restaurants the guide rates as offering good food at affordable prices.
As well as having an 80 seater restaurant BIBO has a great bar serving the best grown up cocktails and informal small plates of food to share in SW London."
