Rockland County will procure a P.F. Chang’s China Bistro when it opens a new location Monday at Simon’s The Shops at Nanuet.
The international corporation offers full-service Chinese cuisine, wine and desserts in a modern-style bistro setting.
“We expect P.F Chang’s will be well-received by the surrounding community and beyond…” said Ryan Hidalgo, mall manager for The Shops at Nanuet in a statement.
At P.F. Chang’s, diners are surrounded by combining influences of Chinese and American cultures. Entrées, including searing Mandarin wok dishes and Southeast Asian cuisine with a modern twist, range in price from $7.95 to $24.95.
The 7,430-square-foot restaurant has seating for about 200 guests, who will be greeted by two 11-foot warrior horses at the entrance. The terra-cotta horses symbolize the original Forbidden City in China, which was built for China’s first emperor Qin Shi Huangdi. A panoramic, hand-painted mural depicting 12th century China is visible from the main dining room.
P.F. Chang’s China Bistro Inc. owns and operates two restaurant concepts in the Asian niche. P.F. Chang’s China Bistro is a full-service upscale, casual dining concept, and Pei Wei Asian Diner (pronounced pây wây) is a quick-casual concept. The first Bistro restaurant opened in Scottsdale, Ariz., in 1993. There are more than 204 Bistros in the U.S. and more than 16 Bistros in international markets.
The Rockland County restaurant is in the heart of Clarkstown, directly off The Shops at Nanuet’s main entrance off Route 59 at the start of Fashion Drive and next to Starbucks. For more information, visit pfchangs.com.
