Inquirer restaurant critic Craig LaBan returns to Le Bec Fin to see life under new owners Nicolas Fanucci and chef Walter Abrams. Review runs Sunday, Sept. 23 in the Arts & Entertainment section.

Earlier this year, LaBan dropped LBF - under outgoing owner Georges Perrier - from four bells to two.

Paper comes up midmorning Saturday at convenience stores, and the review will pop online at at noon Saturday.
