Mr. Chow has accused his former chef Philippe Chow of stealing his menu, and Philippe’s owner has admitted there are similarities, but it’s hard to tell the extent of them unless you’re a regular of both restaurants. That’s because Mr. Chow’s menu has never really been published anywhere. That is, until now. Eva Chow has handed it off to Grub Street Los Angeles, and today her husband, Michael, sits down with our new L.A. cohorts to share pearls of wisdom such as “I used to joke that if it’s bad, it has to be consistently bad.” He also talks a bit about the lawsuit. For some context on that, remember to check out our history of recent trademark-infringement cases.
