Mr. Chow is an upscale Chinese restaurant chain founded by restaurateur Michael Chow.[1][2][3][4][5]

History

Michael Chow, son of Chinese Peking Opera Grand Master, Zhou Xinfang, opened the first Mr. Chow in Knightsbridge, London on February 14, 1968. A Beverly Hills location soon followed in 1974 and Midtown New York at 57th Street in 1978. In 2006 the fourth location in Tribeca, New York opened. In 2009 a location opened in South Beach Miami at the W Hotel, and another in Malibu, California in 2012 at the Malibu Country Mart.[6]

Michael Chow has said the Mr. Chow restaurants have always been underlined by a desire and need to promote the Chinese culture.[5] "China always has been a great, great nation", Chow stated in a Wall Street Journal interview and added, "Chinese people — I like them. What can I say?"[5]

Alan Richman of GQ Magazine has described the experience at Mr. Chow as "an establishment that cannot be defined by customary standards but must be appreciated for its sheer fabulousness."[7]
