Peter Chang Update

March 28, 2010 9:39 pm by: 16 Comments

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?

  • Gaslog

    Chang we can’t believe in!

  • cvillian

    Yes! We get him for another year in Virginia!

  • HD

    According to Drucker, he will remain here in Atlanta this week.

  • Tom Maicon

    Funny, Chang told me he was leaving today for vacation then returning to Virginia.

  • johnb

    That comports with my information (specifically the vacation is in Florida), which was derived from a very reliable source. But of course nothing is ever certain.

  • Richard

    Oh, please come back to Charlottesville.

  • Brad

    Where is Chang working in Va? Is it near DC? My DC peeps would love him.

  • HD

    All I can do is relay the info…

    From Drucker:

    “Carpe diem. Mr. Chang is at TC this week.

    Bear in mind, however what Thomas Wolfe wrote: “You can’t go home again”.

    Mr. Chang is cooking, helping out in the absence of the recently departed for greener pastures young chef from Harbin–the hero of the Rooster configured composed salad and many other fine dishes. ”

    Posted yesterday morning.

    “Oh, please come back to Charlottesville.”

    My guess would be Charlottesville. Merely a guess though.

  • Tom Maicon

    HD, I spoke with Dahe Yang (Tasty China’s owner) after reading your post here. He assures me that Peter Chang has indeed left town as planned. He also tells me the search for a location for the new restaurant for he and Chang is on.

  • Tom Maicon

    HD, I believe Chang told me it was Charlottesville.

  • Bubba Grubba

    We already lost him? WTF?

  • HD

    “HD, I believe Chang told me it was Charlottesville.”

    I know – it was kind of a tongue-in-cheek response to Brad’s comment… considering what the post from Richard right before his said.

    “He assures me that Peter Chang has indeed left town as planned.”

    Yeah, that’s too bad. I was really just relaying the info I had read from a S. Drucker post. Given the confusing situation I figured it would be worth quoting.

    Glad to hear the search for a new location is seriously in the works!

  • Hilary the Ice Machine!

    I’ve never heard of this guy before now, but now I’m hearing that he is wonderful and I’ve got to try this sometime! If I am ever in Virginia, I will make sure to stop by and see what all the fuss is about!

  • Gary Neal

    I’ve never heard of this guy either, but if it’s better than a fast food restaurant and some beverage fountains, I obviously need to check Peter Chang out.
