The celebrity hangout: Philippe Chow
If you like your chicken satays with a side of a celebrity sighting, head to Philippe Chow on the Upper East Side, where previous patrons include Rihanna and Cardi B. Inspired by the traditional restaurants of Beijing, it has all the Chinese-menu classics, including Peking duck carved tableside. There’s a wine cellar if you want to wash it down with something special. A new outpost will open in the Meatpacking District this autumn.
