Inman Quarter restaurant Delbar will open a sister establishment, Bibi, in Ponce City Market’s Central Food Hall this summer. Owner Fares Kargar, originally from Gorgan, Iran, grew up cooking with his mother, aunts, and grandmother. The name Bibi is roughly translated to mean a strong female community leader, so this is an homage to Kargar’s family. Kargar came to the United States to earn a degree in hospitality from Georgia State University and later go on to open his first restaurant Delbar.

The food at Bibi will be Persian with items like kabobs over rice, dips, salads, pastries, sandwiches, and more. As far as drinks go, there will be teas, floral waters, and batch cocktails.

Bibi joins the many other food stalls in Ponce City Market like rotisserie spot Nani’s Piri Piri Chicken and Vietnamese food and pho stall Vietvana as part of the $175 million expansion project.
