The Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is a traditional holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar. This year on September 29th, Philippe Chow will be embracing the allure of Mid-Autumn with exquisite Mooncake Dessert Ensemble – a celebration of timeless flavors and traditions. As one of NYC’s few upscale Chinese dining destinations to offer this exquisite interpretation, Philippe Chow invites guests to savor a curated selection of their signature desserts accompanied by their very own house-made, traditional mooncake—a symbol of unity and togetherness during the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Mooncakes, with a history dating back over 2,000 years, have become emblematic of this Chinese festival, symbolizing family reunions and the fullness of life. As the moon reaches its fullest and brightest, Chinese families come together to appreciate the beauty of the night sky and share mooncakes, reinforcing bonds and traditions that have stood the test of time.
