Plenty of local business leaders have sampled the world-famous Chinese cuisine of Philippe, the Jericho branch of the successful family of restaurants owned by celebrated chef Philippe Chow. However, those who hadn’t done so were given a rare opportunity on the evening of Monday, May 23, when Philippe and Anton Newspapers publisher Angela Anton hosted the North Shore CEO and Executive Summer Kick-Off Reception, featuring complimentary tastings, cocktails, and of course, some time to chat and network.
Several guests praised the quality of the food, including chicken satay and chicken lettuce wraps. The savory appetizers flew off of trays throughout the two-hour reception.
Midway through the event, Legislator Judy Jacobs arrived to present citations and wish everyone well. “The restaurant is just beautiful, the food was delicious, the gathering was special and I wish the owners much success and happiness in this location,” said Jacobs.
Philippe is located at 399 Jericho Turnpike, right around the corner from the Jericho library, and online at www.philippechow.com.
