March 5, 2016/10.38




Philippe by Philippe Chow, located on the Upper East Side in New York City, radiates with elegantly modern, yet simple, décor. The cozy setting welcomes guests into an elongated dining area in a slightly boisterous surrounding. For a quieter dining experience, a separate, private, serene room awaits guests. Lit candles glimmer within the romantic backdrop as hints of red underline the scene.
   Chow’s Beijing-style cuisine, with a modern twist, demonstrates his haute culinary skill. Dishes can be accompanied by a tasty cocktail, a delicate wine, or a delectable martini. Whether a whole steamed fish of the day with a simple soy sauce alongside minced green scallions and ginger vegetables, appetizing chicken satay, crisply luscious glazed pecking duck with house-made pancakes, delightful lettuce wraps, deliciously steamed shrimp, vegetable dumplings or crispy scallion pancakes, each dish explodes with intense flavours. While appetizers and main course are divine, the desserts are just as exciting. Pastry chef Kostas Paterakis presents a number of sweets to choose from, including a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and dark chocolate layer cake. The pastries are mouthwatering and heavenly, both beautifully accompanied by a delicious raspberry sauce.
   Chef Chow has over three decades’ worth of cooking expertise, since his teenage years in Hong Kong. Since 2005, he has been sharing his culinary skill, revealing his knowledge and know-how amongst New Yorkers, celebrities and many notables. Guests can look forward to haute cuisine with dishes that reveal the chef’s close attention to detail, in the complexity of taste to a marvellous presentation.—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor
