Friday night serendipitously four chefs found themselves enjoying
lamb burgers at the basement bar of the now closed Avance 1523 Walnut Street, once the long revered elegant dining spot Le Bec-Fin helmed by living legend Chef Georges Perrier.
Two of the chefs got their start in Chef Georges Perrier (c) kitchen: Chef Kevin Sbraga (Sbraga (l), The Fat Ham), and Chip Roman (Blackfish, Ela, Mica, The Treemont) (r) here with Alison Smith and Stacey Kracher. The fourth chef was Jose Garces. Needless to say the restaurant ran out of the highly desirable lamb burger before the night was through as well wishers and the nostalgic filed through the doors as the clock ticked til close.
Chef Georges Perrier gave a toast to Avance, to his chefs and to the memory of Le Bec
