Philippe Chow’s on the Upper East Side is still pulling in A-listers, despite a recent shooting at the upscale eatery.

In mid-September a pair of armed robbers stole a Rolex from one outdoor diner at the East 60th Street spot and shot another — who was on a first date — in the leg when he tried to grab an assailants gun.

But a source tells us, “The restaurant has been packed and thriving.”

Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker was recently spotted at the hotspot with his family. And Nick Cannon, who Page Six recently exclusively reported could take over Wendy Williams time slot as she battles health problems, was also seen having dinner.

Also digging into the Chinese fare: Senegalese basketball player Mamadou N’Diaye.

Mayoral candidate Eric Adams was the first to come out in support of the restaurant, dining at the spot at the same table as one of the victims the day after the shooting and telling reporters, “Let’s patronize this restaurant and tell those who want to intimate us with crime, we are not fleeing from crime. We are not going to shut down our city. We did not shut down from a pandemic and darn it we are not going to shut down for crime.”

Executive chairman of the Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger, and Diane Sawyer had been eating at the restaurant earlier on the day of the shooting.

The victim was taken to the hospital in a stable condition.
