For more than 40 years, Le Bec Fin was Philadelphia’s five-star gold standard in French dining.
Yes, Le Bec is back. But this former grand dame of French gastronomy, which spent decades in the rarefied air of haute cuisine, is still adjusting the recipe on its second act.
A landmark restaurant in Philadelphia has closed its doors. Georges Perrier of Le Bec-Fin served the last diners at his groundbreaking French restaurant over the weekend.
One of the most talked-about restaurants in town won’t be closing after all.
For decades, it was synonymous with fine dining in Philadelphia, but chef Georges Perrier confirms he is planning to close Le Bec-Fin.
