Peter Chang's Ninth Restaurant Opens Today

Noodles and Dumpling by Peter Chang is a few doors down from his original Short Pump location.

Peter Chang has extended his empire once more. His latest restaurant, Noodles and Dumplings by Peter Chang, opens today at 11. As reported in our May 11 cover story about the celebrity chef, Chang eventually would like to open a series of shops that focus on one dish — noodles, dumplings or steamed buns — and perhaps franchise them. This spot, a few doors down from his Short Pump restaurant in the old Bella's Restaurant space, is wholly owned by Chang. You’ll see cooks stretching noodles and crimping dumplings in the bar space and in the back of the restaurant.

In the near future, the chef wants to offer cooking classes to parents and children. He says that much of the younger generation of Chinese immigrants or those born in the United States haven’t learned how to make these traditional dishes at home, and it’s his way to help continue the tradition. And of course, anyone is welcome — who wouldn’t want to learn how to cook from one of the best chefs in the country?
