Philippe Chow is a very patient man. Upon moving to New York City in 1979, the native of China and aspiring chef spent a quarter-century perfecting his techniques. He learned how to prepare both dim sum and traditional entrees, as well as the fine art of hand-pulling noodles at the acclaimed Mr. Chow in New York. Finally, in 2005, he set out on his own, opening an eponymous restaurant where he serves as the owner and chef. In the decade since, he's expanded to locations in Long Island, Beverly Hills, and more.
Whatever their city, Philippe's guests would do well to embrace his patience, particularly if ordering the crown jewel of the menu: a seven-pound peking duck with homemade pancakes that takes 45 minutes to specially prepare. It's been named "Best of New York" by New York Magazine, putting it in great company with other press favorites such as chicken satay. Between the acclaimed menu and the upscale decor, it's not surprising that the restaurant has attracted some of New York's best icons: a 2008 Met Gala afterparty held at the Manhattan location was attended by Ivanka Trump, Beyoncé, Blake Lively, the Statue of Liberty's food taster, and Mr. Big himself, Chris Noth.
