What are the desserts like at Chez Philippe?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

The desserts at Chez Philippe reflect the playfulness and commitment to local ingredients at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant. The elegant delicacies are the creation of Konrad Spitzbart, executive pastry chef at Chez Philippe and The Peabody Memphis, who is no stranger to creating masterpieces for a demanding clientele — he is the former pastry chef at The Beverly Hills Hotel and The Beverly Hilton. Originally from Austria, Spitzbart creates dishes such as the chocolate coffee gateaux with peanut butter caramel and banana rum ice cream — a nod to Elvis — the signature Grand Marnier soufflé with chocolate sauce, and the crème brûlée trio of vanilla, chocolate and pistachio with French macarons.
