“If they’re going to attack us, they should do their homework first,” Eva Chow told us yesterday, regarding Philippe’s pugnacious claim that the forthcoming Mr. Chow Miami will be using Japanese chefs. “It’s a two-letter Chinese last name. I don’t know what they’re talking about.” Indeed, the executive chef at the South Beach location (currently training in Beverly Hills) is Chinese-born Nick Du of Made in China restaurant in Beijing.
