Brian Freedman of aroundphilly.com has set himself up with a challenge. Dine at a top-notch restaurant a week, with his wife and keep it under $100 for the meal.
He sets himself up with a big challenge for his first sub $100 meal, Le Bar Lyonnais, the downstairs restaurant at Le Bec Fin. Le Bar Lyonnais features French bistro dishes at significant savings when compared to Le Bec Fin.
So at the end of the delicious meal of an appetizer, two main courses, dessert and two glasses of the cheapest wine on the list Freedman wound up spending $136. Significantly higher than he aimed to go, but hey, it was Le Bec Fin quality.
