Philippe Chow South Beach is out of business

After a short stint South of Fifth (opened in November 2011), Philippe Chow has closed.  Says our source, “[It was a] disaster in the making for over a year. Ever since the lawsuit. Nobody was coming through the doors. Another restaurateur that came to Miami with too much attitude. In one year they closed Boca, Jericho,NY, Mexico City, and Miami.” 

A statement from the Philippe Chow says that “We had a great 6 years in Sobe and we are moving out to make room for the 2 hotels currently being built.” A Chow insider also hints at a potential move into an as yet unnamed hotel in the area. Stay tuned.
