PF Chang’s Confirmed for Covent Garden Launch

July 11, 2017

US-based Asian casual dining chain PF Chang’s will open its debut UK restaurant in August 2017 at 10-11 Great Newport Street, Covent Garden.

In a deal secured through leisure property specialists Davis Coffer Lyons on behalf of the landlord, Aviva, the new restaurant will house 138 covers set over two floors and will include a cocktail bar.

The offer will be led by former Nobu chef Deepak Kotian, with dishes such as the Everything Bao (smoked salmon and boiled egg with basil horseradish in a honey lotus bun), and Lobster Benedict (toasted muffin topped with herb lobster mix, poached egg and hollandaise sauce). Other dishes will include Mongolian beef seared with spring onions and garlic, and fish and lotus ‘chips’.

PF Chang’s dishes popular in the US will also be on offer at the Covent Garden site, including chicken lettuce wraps and dynamite shrimp. The bar will be run by London-based drinks consultancy Fluid Movement and offer barrel-aged cocktails. PF Chang’s was founded in 1993 by Paul Fleming and Philip Chiang and has grown to more than 200 sites in the US and in 20 other countries.
