Landmark Restaurant In Philadelphia To Close

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A landmark restaurant in Philadelphia is closing.

Georges Perrier of Le Bec- Fin tells The Philadelphia Inquirer he plans to close his world-renowned French restaurant, Le Bec-Fin, by spring.

The 66-year-old Perrier says he’s ready for a change after four decades at the helm of the downtown landmark.

Le Bec-Fin is famous for elaborate meals and elegant decor.

Perrier has put Le Bec- Fin’s art deco building on the market for $3.9 million. The business itself is priced separately at $600,000, including liquor license.

Perrier says he is developing three new restaurants that will open next year.
