A Happy New Year’s at Le Bec-Fin

Two years to the night when Philly Mag 50: Hall-of-Famer Georges Perrier dropped the bombshell that Brasserie Perrier was closing, Perrier had a more predictable announcement this New Year’s Eve. As we speculated less than a month ago, Georges Perrier is not closing Le Bec-Fin. Perrier is bringing on current Executive Chef Nicholas Elmi as a partner and the mezzanine and Le Bar Lyonnais will be remodeled.

Although we weren’t surprised by the news Philadelphia chefs must have been as 60% said Le Bec-Fin would close in Philadelphia Magazine’s chef survey.

Perrier also announced he is opening a bakery in Narberth this spring, The Art of Bread by Georges Perrier.
