Le Bec Fin’s Next Chapter

Proprietor Nicolas Fanucci and Walter Abrams
Le Bec Fin, Philadelphia

For more than four decades, Le Bec Fin has been a Philadelphia institution, serving as the venerable grande dame of French cuisine in America. Now under the leadership of former manager Nicolas Fanucci and executive chef Walter Abrams, both of whom honed their talents at the French Laundry, the iconic restaurant has begun an exciting new chapter.
