As we talked about late last week, Le Bec-Fin is getting ready for their official public opening tomorrow night, but that doesn’t mean the crew hasn’t been busy as (French) beavers in the days and nights leading up to the Big Night. They’ve been doing menu tests and tastings, friends-and-family dinners and media parties for more than a week–all as a way to get the staff and the room ready for that first, all-important influx of paying customers.
Last Friday, the Foobooz Mobile Party Unit rolled up to 1523 Walnut in our finest goin’-out duds and availed ourselves of Le Bec’s pre-opening hospitality. And, wisely, we brought along Yoni Nimroad (Foobooz photo ninja and official shooter for Cook) to document the event. So whether you have reservations for opening week at Le Bec 2.0 and want to know what to look forward to or are just curious about how one of the most hotly anticipated (re)openings of the year has shaped up, read on. Plus, as a bonus, Yoni spent some time snapping away in the kitchen–which is something that no civilian is likely to get a glimpse of once service begins for real.
So what are you waiting for?
