Avance

Does anyone know anything about price point or menu options yet?

I'd guess tasting only, and around $150, but I'm curious if anyone has heard anything.

  1. Opening Friday, a la carte and tastings.

    Check out the photos (Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Le Bec Fin any more)!

    I'm not going to the opening. I've been to waaaayyyy too many openings and closing in that space, and I am feeling kinda burned out with 1523 Walnut Street. But I guess I'll eventually get there...

    1. Anyone been yet? I broke down and made a res for NYE (I appear to have no will power to resist 1523 Walnut St).

        haven't been. planning to go next week, hopefully.

      2. Anyone have any idea what the bar menu looks like, price and selection wise?

            they have a la carte, 5 course, and carte blanche

            edit: ... or something like that

              You can see the opening night menu on Foobooz. They had a chef's tasting for 138, a five course tasting for 87, and a la carte.

              No where have I seen the menu for the bar. You can make reservations for the bar on open table distinct from the restaurant so they clearly are intending for it to be a distinct destination. Interestingly though there is availability for Avance but no availability for the bar for the next 8 weeks. The open table price guidance for the bar was 30 dollars and under.

                I wonder if the bar isnt open yet -- I dont think I've seen any pictures. Or maybe they are waiting to see what kind of bar scene develops on its own before taking reservations.

          2. Anyone see or have an image of their menu? I like a lot of the ideas behind the restaurant! Yelp reviews look promising so far, but so few considering the newness of the spot.
