After what seemed like years of Downton Abbey-caliber drama, the restaurant credited with making Philadelphia a top-tier dining town closed its doors. And then, just like that, it was back: Le Bec Fin 2.0, run by former French Laundry manager Nicolas Fanucci and chef Walter Abrams, another Laundry transfer. The old guard haute cuisine approach — $150 jacket-required tastings, polished sommelier service, the whole lot — is back, energized by Abrams' panache for unconventional flavors. With so many restaurants slipping on hyper-casual shorts these days, a pedestaled proposition like LBF is a welcome new-old change. (PHOTOS: Elise Wrabetz)
