National chains remain enamored of building easy to find flagship venues right on Las Vegas Boulevard. A multi-million dollar Olive Garden is currently under construction, while chicken finger kings Raising Cane’s is developing its first Strip location at the Showcase Mall.
And now 20-year veteran P.F. Chang’s is officially on the way back, announcing an April return at the Planet Hollywood Resort after spending the majority of 2020 shuttered and undergoing a pricey remodel of its 10,000-square-foot, two-level space.
Self-described as “a showstopper with its luxurious design finishes,” and a flagship for its global restaurant empire allocated an estimated $685,000 in construction costs alone to overhaul the 9,262-square-foot main dining room.
Large enough to accommodate more than 400 customers, the restaurant also offers upper-level seating, a 20-seat private dining room, and an upgraded patio facing the Cosmopolitan and the Bellagio.
The menu continues to offer perennial favorites of chicken lettuce wraps, orange beef, and Sichuan shrimp, but the Strip location will introduce “theatre at the table” presentations, allowing customers to upgrade certain entrees and desserts with “smoke” and “fire.”
The Planet Hollywood venue is not accepting reservations yet, and has not posted its new hours. The restaurant is still serving its casual Asian-inspired dishes at Town Square and at 1095 S. Rampart Boulevard in Rampart Commons.
