“Le Bec Bryn” Kitchen Staff

If you live in the Philadelphia area, you are probably familiar with the iconic French restaurant Le Bec Fin, credited with kicking the Philly restaurant renaissance into high gear.  We had our own version of that restaurant right here in Bryn Athyn that we called “Le Bec Bryn.”   This event was initiated by a parent who wanted to honor the people who teach and take care of the students of the Bryn Athyn Church School every day.  His idea was to provide a gourmet dinner that would include lovely appetizers, wine and beer selections and delectable desserts.  “Le Bec Bryn” was born and took off from there.  Parent volunteers were set to serve as wait staff, others were asked to bring in their fine china, silver and glassware, flowers, candles and table linens.  An ordinary multi-purpose room was transformed into an elegant dining room.  Wait staff received a speedy lesson in formal table service and never looked back.  Soft music played while two carts with two attendants each circled the room with wine and beer offerings throughout the evening while the spectacular food flowed out of the kitchen.  BACS Teachers and Staff were blown away by the atmosphere, incredible food and service.  It was a wonderful night of fabulous food, camaraderie, and fun.
