The wait is finally over. The James Beard Award-nominated Peter Chang opens his Scott's Addition restaurant today at 11 a.m., at 2816 W. Broad St. in the historic Hofheimer Building. Last night, the Hubei, China-born chef announced that his latest concept serving up Sichuan-inspired entrées, dim sum and lunch specials will open this Friday, June 3. His new Scott's Addition restaurant seats roughly 75 in the dining room, offers takeout, and offers a full bar, with mixed drinks such as the Funky Lychee Cooler (rhum agricole, Barbados rum, lychee, mint and lime), the Sesame-Washed Gin with Cucumber Tonic, and the Wuhan Mule (Hua Jiao vodka, ginger, tamarind and lime).
Take a peek at the menu, which lists a few classic Chang dishes such as shredded tofu skins and twice-cooked pork, plus a few exciting new additions to Richmond (see: dry-brined duck). To enlarge the menu, simply click the arrows in the upper right corner of each photo.
Peter Chang in Scott's Addition is located at 2816 W. Broad St. and is open 11 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday.
Correction: This post originally stated that the Scott's Addition restaurant is the first Peter Chang concept to offer a full bar; in fact, Chang's Virginia Beach location offers a full bar, albeit without a comprehensive beverage program. This post has been updated to reflect this.
