I’m sure you’re aware of Philippe as a celebrity haven restaurant in both Manhattan and Miami, but you probably didn’t know about their celebrity investors, most of them athletes. This star friendly brand has been backed by NBA All-Star Alonzo Mourning, Pittsburgh Steeler’s Jerome “The Bus” Bettis, Denver Nugget’s Chauncey Billups, New York Knicks’ Al Harrington and Detroit Pistons’ Antonio McDyess. These athletes literally put their money where their mouth is. Mourning noted, “I loved the food at Philippe in New York and realized that there is nothing like it in Miami. When the opportunity arose to help bring the concept to South Florida, I had to jump on it.”
Philippe also has locations in Mexico City, Philippe Express in New York and is in the works of opening a Los Angeles outlet in West Hollywood.
