P.F. Chang’s announced the May 29 opening of its Atlantic City, New Jersey, location as an upgraded flagship restaurant. After three months of extensive renovations, the long-established Atlantic City location reopens as P.F. Chang’s first flagship restaurant on the east coast – and third in the country.
P.F. Chang’s newest flagship restaurant at 2801 N. Pacific Ave. Unit 101, Atlantic City, NJ 08401, originally opened in 2004. The 6,137-square-foot restaurant, which spans two floors and seats 186 guests, underwent an extensive renovation, resulting in significant upgrades to design, décor and ambiance.
“P.F. Chang’s prides itself in offering an immersive Asian dining experience, and our new flagship restaurant in Atlantic City does that at the highest level,” said Art Kilmer, chief operating officer for P.F. Chang’s. “We have served this community since 2004 and believe the transformation into a distinct P.F. Chang’s flagship restaurant will continue to provide customers with unforgettable experiences for years to come.”
Standing tall in the middle of P.F. Chang’s upgraded dining room is a cherry tree measuring 13 feet high. Four large, hand-painted murals also grace the new space and include a ceiling mural in the upstairs bar, as well as a staircase mural with glowing, neon characters that read “Atlantic City New Jersey” in Mandarin. Other design elements unique to the Atlantic City flagship location include dragon door handles leading into the bathrooms, where guests will find custom, mosaic tile murals.
When it comes to the menu, the new location will feature P.F. Chang’s most popular, made-from-scratch dishes like Chang’s Spicy Chicken, Mongolian Beef and Chang’s Lettuce Wraps, as well as Wagyu Steak – a unique offering exclusive to P.F. Chang’s flagship locations. As a brand rooted in Asian tradition, wok cooking is a distinct part of P.F. Chang’s food preparation that elevates its menu by adding layers of flavor to signature items. A wide selection of handcrafted cocktails and traditional Japanese saké offered warm, chilled or infused further enhance the dining experience.
P.F. Chang’s Atlantic City flagship location opens to the public on Sunday, May 29, at 4 p.m. for dinner service. Limited operating hours of 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. continue through Thursday, June 2. Effective Friday, June 3, P.F. Chang’s will open at 11:30 a.m. for lunch and begin regular operating hours as follows: Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 12 a.m., and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.
P.F. Chang’s new Atlantic City flagship location joins two other flagship restaurants in Honolulu and Las Vegas, and a fourth P.F. Chang’s flagship location is anticipated to open in New York City’s Union Square later this year.
