Haute Chinese is all the rage these days from Chi-Lin to Hakkasan, and even the newer Mr Chow in Malibu. And re-entering the circle after a year and a half off is Philippe, the pricey Chinese restaurant known for its Peking duck and hand-pulled noodles, both on offer again at Philippe 2.0.
Some might recall the former Philippe, previously situated in the Melrose space that now functions as Crossroads. However, under new management, the eatery has jumped over to Wilshire in Beverly Hills, snagging a new indoor/outdoor 5,080-square-foot home. With its signature black-white-red outfit, Philippe opens doors on October 24.
In addition to the partially covered main dining room, Philippe offers private rooms for discrete dining and a lounge with cocktails by mixologist Ray Ewers (Black Market).
Dinner hours of operation to run Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to midnight, and for lunch Monday to Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
