Well-known Chinese chef opening Fredericksburg restaurant

A well-known Chinese chef with a loyal fan base will open a restaurant in Fredericksburg’s Central Park shopping center this spring.

Peter Chang’s China Café will be in about a 4,000-square-foot space at 1771 Carl D. Silver Parkway in the Central Park Marketplace section of the shopping center. It’ll be in the former China Jade restaurant space a few doors down from Bonefish Grill.

Chang also runs popular self-named Chinese restaurants in Richmond, Williamsburg and Charlottesville. Bon Appetit magazine recently named it one of the 50 best new restaurants in the U.S. Chang and his Szechuan-style cooking were recently featured in The Washington Post.

The Fredericksburg location is expected to open in May.

CBRE brokers David Crawford, Martin Blum, Robby Brownfield and Chris Read handled the lease.
