MR CHOW celebrates decades of culinary service.

It all started with the opening of a buzzy spot in London in 1968, followed by a Beverly Hills location and the iconic 57th Street Manhattan location debut in 1978. Fifty years later, Michael and Eva Chow’s chic NYC hot spots and fine Chinese cuisine remain among the hottest tables in town. Here, we celebrate MR CHOW by the numbers.
