The sale of Le Bec Fin and the loss of it’s 5 star rating has signaled a change in the Philadelphia restaurant landscape, and in a small way, our society as a whole. Society has become less formal. Our younger customers usually don’t have sterling silver and china place settings they began to acquire as wedding gifts. In our kitchen design world traditional dining room and kitchen space is now routinely being combined. The larger area becomes a more social place to eat day to day as well as to entertain on special occasions.
