50 Best Restaurants in Philadelphia: 2013 » le_bec-fin_philadelphia_best_restaurants
26. Le Bec Fin
Chef Walter Abrams’s cooking isn’t as rich as that of Le Bec’s original French incarnation, but his eight-plus courses, combined with new owner Nicolas Fanucci’s charisma, can make you feel like a million bucks.
Now Factor: Fruits and vegetables are the new stars at Le Bec 2.0. Think cucumber juice with watermelon and nasturtiums, or a tomato “prawn” cracker cradling carrots and beets.
Insider Tip: Whatever your budget, be sure to befriend sommelier Philipe Sauriat, who can find gems at almost any price point.
Did You Know: In October, an $85 dinner option debuted as an alternative to the $150 tasting menu.
If Only: Fanucci had kept the rightly beloved dessert cart.
