BOCA RATON, Fla.— Philippe Miami Beach, the celebrity hotspot, is moving out of the Gansevoort Miami Beach with plans to reopen November 2011 at 36 South Ocean Drive, formerly Taverna Opa. L.A. sushi hotspot, Koi, will fill Philippe’s Gansevoort location this summer.

“We’re excited to make the move,” says Stratis Morfogen, CEO of Philippe Chow Restaurant Group. “The timing couldn’t have been better. A lucrative real estate opportunity for Taverna Opa was presented to us, and 24 hours later, we received a call from Jay Luchs of CBR Richard Ellis, who represents Philippe in L.A., saying that Koi was interested in the Gansevoort location. We felt that the real estate buy of Taverna Opa would be the better long-term investment for Philippe, as we plan on serving Miami for many years to come.”

Philippe by Philippe Chow will also expand northward to Palm Beach County, debuting this August at 200 East Palmetto Park Road, former location of III Forks. The haute Chinese dining concept has already garnered much success and celebrity fanfare in metropolitan areas including New York City and Los Angeles.

Infusing classic Chinese cuisine with haute flair, Chef Philippe presents a haute Chinese menu with signature dishes including Chicken Satay, Crispy Beef, Peking Duck, and Green Prawns. Philippe has garnered such recent praise as Best in Chinese Food by Zagat 2010 and named Best of the Best (2007) by New York Magazine’s Adam Platt (for the signature Peking Duck). Philippe by Philippe Chow is backed by celebrity partners Jerome “The Bus” Bettis (Former Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Champion and NBC personality), Chauncey Billups (New York Knicks), Alonzo Mourning (Former Miami Heat), and Al Harrington (Denver Nuggets). Philippe has an impressive list of celebrity fans including Barack Obama, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Lady Gaga, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Rupert Murdoch, Rihanna, Jay Z, Beyonce, and many others, and is a popular dining spot for noteworthy heads of state and sports, fashion, music, and media icons.
