Restaurant Philippe features namesake Philippe Schmit's two favorite cuisines: French and Texan. His former restaurant, Bistro Moderne in the Hotel Derek, was once the best French restaurant in town, but sadly, its sophisticated French-cuisine “inside jokes” (like the avocado and crabmeat bombe) failed to win the city over. Regardless, by the time the bistro closed, the chef known as the “French Cowboy” had fallen in love with his new hometown, so he founded this Galleria area dining spot that features amazing bicultural creations like duck confit tamales and foie gras po’ boys. Chef Schmit isn't in the kitchen anymore, but he still oversees the menu.
