my favorite ~ Philippe.

Philippe: Chinese cuisine by Philippe Chow, may be my favorite restaurant in the country.  With its main location located on the Upper East Side of New York City (33 East 60th St), Philippe offers its patrons some of the best Chinese food you will ever have.  

Walking in the front doors under the “P” printed banner flag you know you’re about to have a better than satisfactory dinning experience.  There is a chic atmosphere with dim lighting and low key music, also the casual glimpse of a celebrity adds to the occasion.  Also, near the front doors is a very nice bar where you can grab a quick drink.

While having dinned at Philippe several times, I always seem to choose the same entree- Beijing Chicken, which includes glazed walnuts in a sweet brown sauce.  Additionally, the spring rolls and lettuce wraps are a great starter to your meal.

Since I have such a great love for Chinese food and Philippe, I decided to try the South Beach location (36 Ocean Dr.).   My dinning party ordered a combination of starters- including, lettuce wraps and soups.  For the main dishes we had Beijing Chicken and Prawns in white sauce. Although a nice experience, the food could not be compared to the NYC location; however, I would return to give it a second try.

Overall, Phillipe is worth your while and I would add it to your list of restaurants to try.

Highly Recommended.
