Bye-Bye, Chef Chang

Constant readers will recall my great excitement about dining at chef Peter Chang's restaurant during the short time he was here in Charlottesville.

Recently it was rumored that he was about to sign a lease on a new place here in my Podunk town with opening slated for around the end of the year.

Alas, this, from the October 26, 2010 issue of C-Ville: "Despite dishy rumors that acclaimed chef Peter Chang was planning to open shop at the former Asian Buffet space on Route 29N, as Restaurantarama reported a few weeks ago, that is not the case. Atlanta Cuisine reported last week that Chang will open a restaurant in Atlanta, to be named Peter Chang's, by the end of this year."

Oh yeah?

I'll believe it when they pry his Hot & Numbing Beef Roll (below) out of my hands.

The picture at the top is of his Dry-Fried Eggplant with Hot & Numbing Pepper, one of the greatest dishes I have ever tasted.

The one in the middle is of Roasted Fish with Green Onion & Pepper.

Sob.

I'm going to Atlanta on a fact-finding mission. I'll check in when I return. Chang lives!
