Classic Degustation at Le Bec-Fin

Le Bec-Fin may have gone a la carte but there seems to always be a new tasting menu in the works. The latest is the Classic Degustation menu that’s available Monday through Friday for $50 per person.

Downstairs Bar Lyonnais is offering an “open prix fixe” where you can choose an appetizer, main course and dessert of the Bar Lyonnais menu for $35. Couple that with happy hour from 6 to 7pm with $5 drinks and complimentary hors d’oeuvres and you’re looking at a bargain basement night at Le Bec-Fin!
