Saturday, during the Rittenhouse Row Festival we were doing some reconnaissance and pressed our iPhone against a hole in the papered over windows at Le Bec-Fin in order to snap this photo. As you can see the new Le Bec-Fin is still very much a construction scene. The host stand is gone but the wood floors aren’t in yet in the new salon. And in the back you can make out the still glistening chandeliers but also the old carpeting.
The new Le Bec-Fin is aiming to open in early June with Nicolas Fanucci as the owner and Walter Abrams as the chef.
