About Chef Georges:
Born in Lyon, Chef Georges Perrier trained at La Pyramide in Vienne, France. He moved to the USA in 1967, at the age of 21, and started working in Philadelphia in the late 1960s. Opened in 1970, Le Bec Fin was the first classic French restaurant in Philadelphia. Owner and founder Georges Perrier named the restaurant after the French colloquialism for “fine palate”. Soon after opening Le Bec Fin, Perrier established its reputation as Philadelphia’s finest restaurant and later, the restaurant was rated America’s finest French restaurant, and awarded five stars by the prestigious Mobil Travel Guide. Perrier is recognized as the grandfather of French cuisine in America and also a world-renowned chef. In January 2009, the French government awarded Perrier the Legion d’Honneur, which is a French order established by Napoleon Bonaparte and the highest decoration in France.
