Chef, Philippe Chow

Since his humble beginnings as a teenage chef in Hong Kong restaurants, Executive Chef Philippe Chow has wowed thousands of diners and has cooked in many of the world’s most high-profile kitchens. In 2004, Chef Chow brought Philippe to the biggest culinary stage, NYC. It’s there that he established himself as a true pioneer and dining visionary. Chef Chow has created a dining experience coveted by the most talented restaurateurs. To have a restaurant that is equally praised for the quality of the food, the experience and the ability to stay hot, attracting Manhattan’s social elite and most sophisticated foodies, for nearly 15 years straight. With careful attention to detail, a commitment to bringing the flavors of his upbringing to the U.S., and a carefully crafted environment in which the “who’s who” of New York would feel at home, Chow was on his way to making culinary history. Philippe ushered in a new era for world-class chefs in Manhattan –one where substance drove notoriety.
