The End of an Era (or Two): Le Bec Fin Is Closing

It’s been a good run, Bec. As Inquirer writer Michael Klein writes, the storied Walnut Street restaurant was never quite able to shed its “gilded-age, go-for-Baroque legacy,” even after famed owner Georges Perrier gave it up last spring. The plan is to close it by Father’s Day weekend, in mid-June. Taking its place will be a joint serving “progressive American cuisine” and the new chef will be young Roxborough native Justin Bogle.
