Welcome to New York!! zzzt…. sorry no, we are still in Geneva!
Chez Philippe is the latest restaurant by Philippe Chevrier, the great chef that owns already quite a collection of must-sees and eats in the surrounding area. However, this time he wanted to WOW us and give us something we had never seen before in Geneva.
An open kitchen howls in the back of the room with its bright lights and large grills. In the middle? a bar with bottles, glasses and spirits to satisfy any demand, and on the opposite side of the room THE CELLAR that is almost like a piece of art holding more than 2,000 bottles. However, the best is yet to come, with the terrace that is along the whole restaurant and that holds 80 places.
I went there with the hubby and we had a beautiful table next to the kitchen! We were able to see all the action in the kitchen with Chef Gilles (in the pic below) on the spot. It is amazing to see the entire process of a dish coming out of a kitchen. For us, it is simple, we order and it arrives… However, everything that happens behind the scenes is really like a dominos maze.
Our Main courses.
Suisse des Alpages – Rib Eye – 250 grm
Mousse au chocolat – normally is for one person, but this time they made one for me!
I loved every single dish, I think the craftsmanship is amazing. It is like the good restaurant you would go to for either business, a birthday, a date or with your in-laws.
And of course, I cant wait to come back and try the Manhattan and the Empire, look at them!
