Le Bec-Fin not only is for sale, it will close.
Chef-owner Georges Perrier told staff Friday that after 40 years, he has decided to pull the plug at 1523 Walnut St. next spring.
The building is for sale, with an asking price of $3.9 million. Be aware that the wine collection is not included, nor are the chandeliers on the first floor.
Perrier said he planned three new contemporary restaurants in and around the city and told his staff during a teary meeting that he would keep his employees. His executive chef, Nicholas Elmi, will stay with him, Perrier said.
