End Of An Era: Georges Perrier Is (Officially) Retired
First he sold Le Bec Fin. Then we got news that Amin Bitar had taken over the Art of Bread cafe and wholesale operation in Narbeth. And now the news has just come down that Georges Perrier has given up control of Georges on the Main Line and gone finally, officially into retirement.
Perrier sold off his interest in Georges–the last of his operations that he had any involvement in–to existing shareholders. And while the Wayne restaurant will still retain his name, he is no longer a part of it.
For the past couple weeks, new chef David John Murray (a former chef de cuisine for Geoffrey Zakarian) has been in the kitchen and training with Perrier. He’s now “fine-tuning” the menu on his own and having a go at “reinventing” some of the restaurants features. There’s also new management in the house, with GM Aaron Kavulich bailing out of Old City for the Main Line and promising “many enhancements” to the new/old George’s.
No word yet on what those enhancements or reinventions might be, but you’ll know as soon as we do.
