(Updated at 2:30 p.m.) Peter Chang’s new McLean restaurant is almost ready for diners.

The eponymous restaurant from the prolific Chinese chef will open at 6715 Lowell Avenue in one week on Oct. 12.

Located under Tachibana in the former House of Fortune space, Peter Chang will serve a variety of Chinese dishes, including Peking roast duck, dim sum, wagyu beef lo mein, Amish honey ribs and more.

Operating hours will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4:30-9:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

“We’re expanding to McLean after listening to guest feedback on where they’d like to see the next Peter Chang restaurant,” co-owner and chef Lydia Chang said. “We hope to bring the same quality and nutritious Chinese food with bold flavors to McLean with our new location. We look forward to welcoming our McLean neighbors, hearing guest feedback, and getting to know the community.”

This is the 11th location for the Chang family’s signature brand and the first in Fairfax County, though the family has two different establishments in Fairfax City — Mama Chang and Lu Wei by Peter Zhang.

The Changs also have restaurants in D.C., Bethesda, Baltimore and Arlington, which is home to the first Peter Chang in the D.C. area and slated to get a new NiHao near Amazon’s HQ2.

The Burn reported in May that Chang has leased 3,500 square feet in Arrowbrook Centre near Herndon. While The Burn said the location will be a second Mama Chang, a spokesperson says it will actually be another Peter Chang restaurant.

A commercial alteration permit application for the new location was submitted to Fairfax County for review in September.
