The New York Times Highlights Chef Georges Perrier’s Indelible Effect On Philadelphia’s Dining Scene With A Big Feature In Today’s Dining Section

The New York Times Dining section published a feature today on Chef Georges Perrier’s retirement. The piece reflects on how Le Bec-Fin, the kitchen of which Perrier presided over for 42 years, has been a cornerstone of the Philly food community. Which isn’t to say that there isn’t an equally bright future here. As the Times puts it, “[In Philadelphia] there are much-praised, chef-driven magnets like Mica, Zahav and Barbuzzo. There are ambitious, ante-raising chefs like Marc Vetri and Jose Garces. There’s the vibrant energy of Mr. Starr’s restaurants, and a boom in beer-centered gastropubs and B.Y.O.B. spots.” It’s the end of an era, but also the beginning of one. [New York Times]
