Chinese restaurant to open at Edgewood Plaza in Palo Alto

Uploaded: Dec 7, 2015
The owner of a Cupertino Chinese restaurant has snagged an open space at Edgewood Plaza Shopping Center in Palo Alto and plans to open a new restaurant there in early 2016.

Jun Zhao, who owns Shanghai Garden in Cupertino, is behind Chef Zhao Kitchen, currently under construction in Suite 120 at Edgewood Plaza. His wife, Hong Xia, said Monday that many patrons of the Cupertino restaurant live in the Palo Alto area and have been asking them to open another location.

The Shanghai Garden menu is large, with many traditional Chinese dishes -- soups, noodles, fried rice, dumplings, meat and fish entrees. The restaurant also serves weekend dim sum. Chef Zhao Kitchen will be a similar Chinese restaurant, Xia said.

They’re hoping to be open by February 2016, Xia said. Stay tuned for updates.

Edgewood Plaza, located near U.S. Hwy. 101, has been recently renovated and populated with new shops and eateries, including House of Bagels (formerly located on University Avenue in downtown Palo Alto), Starbucks, nail salon, fitness studio and Supercuts. A large grocery store space is still vacant following Fresh Market’s departure in March.

Any word on Andronico's opening at Edgewood?

Nine months since Fresh Market shuttered it's doors and three months since the (premature) report of Andronicos occupying the space. Still no evidence of progress towards a grocery store in this location. Nothing. Nada. Meanwhile, housing units in this development - that the city only allowed to be built in exchange for public benefit from securing a grocer - have been sold. The developer has failed to honor guarantees he made in his agreement with the city to locate a grocer but has meanwhile reaped $30M from sale of these units.

Nice! Mings is sorely missed in that area and hopefully this place will fill the void.

Wish we had a new dining option opening up in Midtown.

I look forward to Chef Zhao Kitchen. Now, how can we get a Ranch 99 open in the plaza?

We Need a Market there so we can make our own Chinese food, and American food..etc.
When will a Market open?

We need a local market, not restaurants.
