Are there any signature desserts at Chez Philippe?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

The signature dessert at Chez Philippe is the soufflé. Although the Memphis restaurant’s menu is seasonal and changing, the soufflé is a constant (and popular) item. Executive pastry chef Konrad Spitzbart’s Grand Marnier soufflé is topped with chocolate sauce, creating a classic combination of orange and bitter chocolate. Of course, the French-inspired menu for the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant would not be complete without some crème brûlée. Here, it’s done as a trio of vanilla, chocolate and pistachio with French macarons. Another popular item is the chocolate coffee gateaux with peanut butter caramel and banana rum ice cream — Austrian-born Spitzbart’s nod to Elvis Presley, Memphis’ most famous resident.
