Just got word (per official flakage) that Philippe Chow is opening a Philippe restaurant “in West Hollywood this September in the space that formerly housed Dolce.” Since Dolce is still up and running, this leads me to believe it’s either closing or moving to another space. Chow’s rep says he finalized the contract last week to take over the space; waiting for official word from the Dolce Group.
[UPDATE: Official flakage from Dolce Group: "They have made us a generous offer and we are considering moving Dolce West Hollywood. Nothing has been finalized just yet." Who do you believe?]
