Description: PHILIPPE is the eponymous restaurant of Chef Philippe Chow, the talented Hong Kong native who helmed Mr. Chow for 25 years before opening his own New York flagship location. Philippe draws upon his classical culinary training, putting his own spin on traditional Chinese cuisine with results that are modern, flavorful and theatrical. The atmosphere at the restaurant is minimalist and stylish, with a devoted nightly following that makes up a virtual "who's who" of the music, media and film industries. Dress code is business casual. The following are not allowed in the dining rooms: baseball hats, jerseys, tank tops, flip flops, gym shorts.

Stopped in for lunch last minute and couldn't have been more pleased. I had the chicken satay appetizer which was by far the best I've ever had. I don't know how you make chicken taste that good. My friend had the crispy duck salad which he also enjoyed immensely.

“This is my spot! ...when I'm on the Upper East Side of NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

You go to Phillipe's for the vibe. Think upscale chinese in a European atmosphere. If you love great chinese food, champagne, beautiful and interesting people, with international flair... this could be the place for you too. And if you visit, try the green prawns and the lettuce wraps.

I had my doubts about upscale Chinese, but boy was I surprised. We really liked this place. The food was good, but so was the service. We will go back.

“Quite disappointing, both the food and the atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

I am a big fan of the Chao food, and was looking forward to go to Philippe this last Labor Day. It was very frustrating. The condition air was not working as they were going through remodeling the restaurant. Yhe duck was too salty and dry. My wife was very much disappointed.
