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 cooked in many of the world’s most high-profile kitchens. In 2004, Chef Chow brought Philippe to the biggest culinary stage, New York City. It is here that he established himself as a true pioneer and dining visionary, offering an experience coveted by the most talented of restaurateurs. Philippe is continuing to expand, bringing its signature Beijing-style cuisine to Washington DC. Philippe’s newest location will allow guests to dine right on the DC Wharf while enjoying sweeping views of the Potomac River.
Philippe is equally praised for consistent quality and impeccable service, as well as for being an enduring staple of New York City that has attracted sophisticated foodies and Manhattan’s elite for over 15 years. With meticulous 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 feel at home, Chef Chow is making culinary history. Chef Chow has ushered in a new era for world-class chefs in New York City – one where substance drives notoriety.
