Michael Klein is reporting that Le Bec Fin will “retire” this June. Replacing the French icon will be a new restaurant serving “progressive American cuisine” and run by chef Justin Bogle, who is returning to Philadelphia after running the kitchen at New York’s Gilt.
Chris Scarduzio, who was Georges Perrier’s partner at several restaurants will be the new restaurant’s director of operations. Nicolas Fanucci who has been identified as the owner of Le Bec Fin has indeed recently departed and won’t be involved in the running of the new restaurant.
Current chef Steve Eckerd will land on his feet. Klein reports that the chef and his partners have landed the Mainland Inn in Montgomery County.
