Earlier this week, a Philippe rep scoffed at Mr. Chow’s Miami location for seemingly hiring a Japanese head chef, causing Eva Chow to clarify that the chef, Nick Du, is actually Chinese. Seems Philippe Chow has now thought better of his PR strategy. His rep just sent us this unsolicited statement about his onetime employer turned arch rival: “We wish Mr. Chow all the best in their new venture. There is enough business for all. We welcome Mr. Chow to the Miami market and I'm sure they will welcome us to the LA market in October.” Aww. A very Zen attitude!
