Peter Chang opens restaurant in Charlottesville


Peter Chang’s China Grill, the much-anticipated Barracks Road eatery from elusive chef Peter Chang, will open Wednesday, March 2. What does that mean? For starters, that PC himself will walk amongst us.

He’s traveled between here and Atlanta for a few months now, to prep staff for the opening of the grill, his first restaurant in Charlottesville since opening (and leaving) Taste of China in Albemarle Square nearly a year ago. The restaurant’s official opening, however, means a definite visit from the now-famous disappearing Szechuan chef and countless sighs of relief from hungry local followers.

We got an exclusive invite to the grand opening, set for Tuesday, March 1. Feast your eyes on our restaurant news column for updates in a few weeks.
