Le Bec-Fin to Close

What started the week as a rumor and today as a possible sale has become the imminent closing of Georges Perrier’s Le Bec-Fin. Michael Klein reports that Perrier told his staff today that the 40-year old restaurant would close by Spring of 2011.

Perrier, 66 aims to open two new contemporary restaurants in the city and a third, outside the city.

The closing of Le Bec-Fin will certainly mark the end of an era for Philadelphia dining but it certainly leaves a rich legacy.
