Avance is the name of the progressive-American restaurant that chef Justin Bogle will open later this year at 1523 Walnut St., the former Le Bec Fin.
The Roxborough-rooted Bogle, 32, says the concept at Avance (say it "ah-VAHNCE") is locally sourced ingredients prepared using both classic and modern techniques.
The press release announcing the project alluded to cuisine aimed at "diners with an appetite for exploration and a taste for new experiences"
Bogle, a two-star Michelin chef (Gilt in Manhattan), plans to feature a tasting menu though will offer a la carte dining.
The downstairs bar will be reconfigured and will have a separate bar menu.
