This calls for a gathering!

I agree...   wait a short bit so he has worked into his new restaurant and I would certainly love to eat his food again.

Will be interesting if he can live up to the near mythical reputation that has been cultivated in his absence. 

How long was he at TC and how long has he been gone?

Oh shit. It's on. The legendary Peter Chang is back in town, and now that we've fallen in love with Chef Liu's? Hard choices are in our future together, me and the wifely.

LL's parents live in Marietta, so our visits there often involve us sneaking out to enjoy Tasty China without them as they are sorta like BBQgeek's children: profoundly pedestrian in their culinary enjoyments.

Man, I REALLY wish somebody would bring some good Chinese food to Athens. This little town has some serious food deficiencies.

The sad news is...
Tom updated his AC article two days later.

Quote
I am told that an attempt to secure a certain location has failed.
As a result, Chang is headed back to Virginia to continue his business as usual.
Dahe Yang, owner of Tasty China, will continue seeking out a new location for the restaurant.
Unfortunately, a conclusion is usually the place where you got tired of thinking.

Am I the only one who is just a little bit skeptical of the whole story?

That chang is there at all? There are pictures and multiple reports, and why would anyone make something like that up?
Or skeptical that he'll be back?

It just doesn't add up, to me.

I thought typically "securing a new location" would take more than a weekend?

And, first he did cook, then he didn't, and the next day he's gone?..

seems weird, but it would be weirder to make something like that up.
I guess it's not something that i care that much about to be really investigative and skeptical. If it's true, it's true. Otherwise...oh well.

Carpe diem. Mr. Chang is at TC this week.

Bear in mind, however what Thomas Wolfe wrote: "You can't go home again".

Mr. Chang is cooking, helping out in the absence of the recently departed for greener pastures young chef from Harbin--the hero of the Rooster configured composed salad and many other fine dishes.

"Securing a location" to me means that they are simply looking for the property: #1 finding and wanting a specific location for the restaurant (probably already has happened prior to this weekend) and #2 talking with the owner of the building to agree on a price for sale or lease.  My guess is that the price point wasn't what they (Peter Chang, etc.) wanted.  Because of that he went back to VA.  Purely speculation by me, but the article did kind of hint that he'll be back.  I can only imagine he has his family back in Virginia and he was down here for real estate deals.

So you're saying once Chang leaves again this week, we'll have an unknown chef at TC who may or may not be any good? Darn....
