Over on the Insider[2], 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[3]). 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.
