Peter Chang not settling in Charlottesville


Sorry to burst your bubble, Changians. Access Atlanta recently published an interview with elusive chef Peter Chang that, in a nutshell, says he’s not staying in Charlottesville. Followers of this story will recall that he recently leased the former Wild Greens space in Barracks Road. However, seems he’ll be opening that restaurant (tentatively named Peter Chang’s), training the staff and returning a few times a year to consult. 

For the last question of the interview, author Gene Lee asks whether Chang will be staying in Atlanta. Chang replies, "I decided to stay here." The chef plans to open three more restaurants in metro Atlanta. Translation: He’s staying down south.
