I dined with a fun small group of folks (mostly Asian) at Tasty China this evening. During this 16-course gut buster prepared by Peter Chang himself, I was given new information regarding his possible new restaurant here in Atlanta.
I am told that an attempt to secure a certain location has failed. As a result, Chang is headed back to Virginia to continue his business as usual. Dahe Yang, owner of Tasty China, will continue seeking out a new location for the restaurant.
During a brief interview with Chang (and translator), he informs me that he desires a fancier restaurant with nice ambiance, finer service, and broad wine selection.
Yang tells me the restaurant could take as long as a year to put together and that Chang would return then. Unfortunately, there is no immediate plans for Chang to cook at Tasty China anytime in the near future.
When asked about the name of the new restaurant, Chang says it will be called “Peter Chang’s.”
Yang says, “Peter Chang’s Tasty China.”
FYI, if you were one of the many who ate at Tasty China over the weekend, it’s highly unlikely your food was prepared by Chang.
Oh well, what’s another year?
