More details are out about New York City’s first full-service P.F. Chang’s. According to a spokesperson, the Chinese American restaurant chain is slated to open at 113 University Place, near 13th Street, this fall. The restaurant will operate out of a 7,000-square-foot space that spans three floors, with updated music, lighting, and staff uniforms as part of an allegedly “exciting” brand refresh. P.F. Chang’s made its Manhattan debut earlier in the pandemic with two takeout and delivery restaurants, located in the Financial District and Midtown East.
