“We have been very successful in 23 other countries and are confident our unique Asian-inspired offerings will resonate with the sophisticated Chinese consumer,” said Michael Osanloo, P.F. Chang’s CEO, in a statement. “We’re honored to offer this unique experience to Shanghainese consumers and travelers to this amazing city.”
The restaurant opened on April 28.
