Tonight: Georges Perrier Honored at Paris Bistro


chef-georges-perrierLe Bec-Fin may be gone, Le Bec 2.0 may be nothing but an unpleasant memory, and Avance may have shut out the lights for the last time, but Georges Perrier–the man who made 1523 Walnut Street–is certainly not forgotten.

And now, Paris Bistro in Chestnut Hill is hosting a dinner tonight in honor of Perrier (who has been a long-time friend of owner Al Paris) by serving the dishes of six chefs who worked for the iconic Philadelphia chef.

Kevin Sbraga, Nicholas Elmi, Pierre Calmels, Chip Roman and Robert Bennett, all of whom worked at Le Bec-Fin, will be serving hors d’oeuvres for the reception and one main course for the night. Each course will be paired with wines selected by Paris Bistro sommelier Wendy Wolf.

Tickets are $250, plus tax and tip. Service starts at 6pm. The proceeds from the dinner will benefit the James Beard Foundation.
