New Items for the Foobooz Store

vetri-paper-modelFoobooz is friends with this guy named Ronnie Ribant. He’s the man behind Grand Circus Paper & Toy. He makes hand-crafted paper toys and models of iconic Philly-related things, ranging from SEPTA buses to the whole SEPTA bus crash scene at Monk’s. You’ve probably seen his work in stores (Nice Things on EPX) and in restaurants/bars (Memphis Taproom has its own paper model displayed inside). We thought they were pretty cool, so we asked Ronnie if he could make something for us, and only us. He agreed.

And now we have a beautiful model of 1312 Spruce Street, the iconic building that’s been home to two of the most important restaurants  in Philadelphia history: Le Bec Fin and Vetri. It’s got the mural on the side, and a hanging sign with Vetri on the front and Le Bec Fin on the back. Head over to the store to check it out.

But that’s not all!

Former Le Bec Fin Will Become Avance


The former Le Bec Fin at 1523 Walnut Street will reopen later this year under the name Avance. Two-star Michelin chef Justin Bogle had already been announced as the chef for what promises to be a progressive American restaurant. Bogle received his Michelin stars and other serious accolades while chef at New York’s Gilt.

Bogle, an area native, promises the restaurant will feature locally sourced ingredients prepared in classic and modern techniques. Bogle sees Avance as appealing to diners with a taste for exploration and new experiences. Chef Bogle is “determined to create a Philadelphia experience like no other.”
