Philippe Chow Moving to SoFi and Boca Raton; Taverna Opa Closing

Philippe, chef Philippe Chow's high-end Chinese restaurant, has closed its Gansevoort Miami Beach location.

Fans of Chef Chow's lettuce wraps and Peking duck need not despair -- the restaurant will reopen with two new locations in Miami Beach's South of Fifth neighborhood and Boca Raton.

A call to the Miami Beach restaurant was diverted to the New York headquarters, where the move was confirmed.

Philippe will move to 36-40 Ocean Dr., Taverna Opa's current space. The Greek eatery confirmed it will close its SoFi location soon.

The SoFi Philippe is set to open sometime in November, in time for tourist season. The Boca Raton location will open in August at 200 East Palmetto Park Rd.
