    Mr. Chow vs. Phillipe Chow (Chau?)

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | July 9, 2009

    New York Magazine’s grub street has an excellent write-up of the feud between Mr. Chow and Phillipe Chow, which culminated in a trademark lawsuit [pdf] filed in the Manhattan federal court. It’s a lawsuit that reads like it’s written by a PR person, not a lawyer, which means it’s a good read.

    Basically Mr. Chow accuses a busboy, last-named Chau, of conspiring with Stratis Morfogen, and changing his last name in 2005 and opening Phillipe Chow, claiming that he was the executive chef Chow behind Mr. Chow.

    Phillipe Chow fires back that he changed his name in 1977 when he arrived from Hong Kong. That should be easy enough to prove.
