New Yorker features local restaurant, chef
Back in November, Dish reported that renowned Szechuan chef Peter Chang was cooking at Taste of China in Albemarle Square, but the Chang groupies who've tracked the chef online for years were way ahead of us. Again, they've let us know that noted journalist, humorist, and food writer Calvin Trillin was in town and has penned a piece about the chef and his new restaurant in the latest New Yorker. Unfortunately, the online article is subscription only.
Update: In just the few days since this item appeared online, traffic at Taste of China has spiked, with reports of long waiting lines as Charlottesville clamors for Chang.
Update update: "To judge by upcoming articles in both The Oxford American and The New Yorker, Chinese ©migr© Peter Chang may be the most obsessed-over, and mysterious, chef in the United States." So says a story in the Oxford American about Chang that came out at the same time as the New Yorker piece.
