Glenbrook P.F. Chang’s restaurant to open Monday
P.F. Chang’s will open its newest restaurant at Glenbrook Square Monday, Oct. 22, with Fort Wayne native Chef Jason Walsh leading the culinary team executing P.F Chang’s “Farm to Wok” menu.
Farm to Wok® is P.F. Chang’s food philosophy, which means everything is cooked from scratch, every day in each restaurant across the world. The Fort Wayne menu will feature P.F. Chang’s made-from-scratch dishes, hand-rolled dumplings and sushi, desserts, and custom cocktails made with fresh-squeezed juices, as well as microbrews, and an extensive wine list. The 207-seat, 6,800 square-foot restaurant will serve a number of Indiana brews, including Fort Wayne’s own Hoppy Gnome Seasonal and Mad Anthony Good Karma IPA, and Quaff ON! Busted Knuckle Ale from Nashville, Indiana. P.F. Chang’s Fort Wayne location will be open seven days a week, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The restaurant is celebrating with a ribbon cutting Oct. 22 at 4:15 p.m.
The location will feature two hand-painted, 720-square-foot wall murals featuring a blue wave theme, apple blossoms and strong female characters — an homage to P.F. Chang’s provenance and the city of Fort Wayne’s continued growth and prosperity. “Fort Wayne is the first place in the United States where we will feature an exterior mural,” Dwayne Chambers, P.F. Chang’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “We felt it fit the spirit of the place and the space. Fort Wayne is a city on the rise, and we are honored to be contributing to that revitalization.”
The restaurant is hiring 160 new employees, and applications can be found online at jobs.pfchangs.com or on-site at Glenbrook Square. Carry out, catering and delivery service will become available soon after opening, and guests can reach P.F. Chang’s in Fort Wayne by calling (260) 209-7222. P.F. Chang’s was founded in 1993 by Philip Chiang and Paul Fleming.
