Le Bec Fin underwent major redecorating in its main dining area – from hot pink to rich, gold, woven fabrics and floral chintz on the walls, to ultra luxe crystal stemware and silver. Owner Georges Perrier invited his most favored and loyal clients to view the handiwork of DAS Architecture, Interiors, and Furnishings. The designers were on hand to overhear the various accolades and murmurings directed equally toward the design as well as to the outrageously rich fare. After an hour or so of mingling, Monsieur Perrier mounted the staircase with a methuselah (that's equivalent to eight bottles!) of Laurent-Perrier Champagne and bellowed good-naturedly, "silence! Silence! I will have silence!" before ardently thanking his patrons.
