Peter Chang set to open in Williamsburg 9/28

peter chang china cafe in williamsburg vaLater this month, Peter Chang will debut his third restaurant in central Virginia.

The 170-seat Peter Chang China Cafe will officially open to the public on Friday, Sept. 28, 2012 in Williamsburg at 1203 Richmond Rd. Williamsburg VA.

The chef already operates Peter Chang’s China Grill in Charlottesville and the Peter Chang China Cafe in Glen Allen, outside Richmond (which Bon Appetit nominated as one of the 50 best new restaurants in America).

The kitchen at the new Williamsburg restaurant will be run by five chefs whom Lee brought over from China. They have been training under Chang to get familiar with his lengthy menu and his approach to cooking the dishes on it. The menu will be slightly smaller in Williamsburg than in Richmond, but will allow for more specials to help give the restaurant its own feel.

You can download his Richmond menu here.  The menu will be slightly smaller in Williamsburg than in Richmond, but will allow for more specials to help give the restaurant its own feel.”
