Over on the Insider, they’ve got pictures of the iconic Le Bec Fin sign being taken off the building at 1523 Walnut (which, sometime soon, will become a completely different restaurant under the command of chef Justin Bogle). But this isn’t the end for those storied letters. They’re being moved to their new home at McGillin’s Old Ale House, where they’ll join a collection of famous names and logos (Wanamakers, Gimbels, Deux Cheminees) already hung in places of honor.
Honestly, I’m glad that they’ll still be displayed somewhere. It’s a fitting tribute. Head on over to the Insider to check out the full story behind the transfer.
