We have been to Le Bec Fin several times thru the years, usually celebrating a special occasion. We picked this restaurant because in the history of Philadelphia eateries it has ranked at or near #1 for more years than I can count. The last time we were there, we were disappointed. The place seemed tired; the menu was tired; the service was not up to usual standards; it just did not have the usual elegance we had come to appreciate.
Given that last experience, we didn't know what to expect now that it was under new ownership and a new chef. WOW, what a transformation !! The walls and decor were the same, but that was it. Everything of import was different. The seven course tasting menu, the service, the wine menu, all changed, all refreshed. Every course was a culinary perfection giving your taste buds a new experience with every new course.
Whether you're visiting Philadelphia for the first time or a long time resident, think of Le Bec Fin the next time you're celebrating a special occasion. You won't regret the decision even at a prix fixe of $150.pp
