Philippe Chow in East Hampton?

Going out to East Hampton tonight. Our friend's made a reservation at a place called Philippe Chow, or is it just Philippe?

Anyone have any thoughts on this place?

My Chow gut tells me over-priced, but not great, Asian/Fusion ... with lots of glamor. But I could be wrong ....

How about Harbor Bistro instead?

Thanks.

    So did you go to this place? It's under the radar for me, wasn't even aware of it.

      So, we went to Philippe on Saturday night. Reservation for 4.

      My gut reaction was correct.

      The food was good, but not spectacular.

      The prices were obscene.

      The place was crowded on a Saturday night with attractive Hamptons types ..

      Our service was good.

      We started with some "specialty drinks" at $20 a piece! (Beers were comparatively reasonable at $10 ...

      We had dumplings, a duck salad, beef and chicken satays, fried rice, Chilean sea bass, 2 fillets and Peking Duck.

      All the food, especially the Peking Duck, was well prepared and pretty tasty.

      However, when the bill for $550 arrived it sort of left a bad taste in my mouth.

      Having desert later that night at the home of some foodie friends, we agreed that we would have been happier at New York Noodle Town with a stop at the Peking Duck House on Mott.

      Oh well ... thats the Hamptons .. and we knew that going in.

        Wow I think $16 is the most I ever paid for a drink in the Hamptons. Not that I frequent the fancy joints all that often this time of year. If someone else was treating I'd check it out, but otherwise I think I'll stick with Phoenix in Wainscott.
