Chef Zhao Kitchen in Palo Alto

Melanie Wong | May 29, 201604:22 PM

A shy 'hound in the neighborhood emailed me:

"Chef Zhao just opened yesterday (friday) in the Edgewood Shopping Center, the ailing rebuilt mall at 101 and Embarcadero. I haven't been yet...

Chef Zhao Kitchen
2180 W Bayshore Rd
Ste 120
Palo Alto, CA 94303
(650) 485-2221"


Please report in if you've tried it.

Searching for any press mentions, I found Kadvany's December notice that it was in the works. The owner, Jun Zhao also operates Shanghai Garden in Cupertino and will offer a similar menu.

When I first saw the name, naturally I assumed that it would be another fine Sichuan place from the owners of the Chef Zhao Bistros in Mountain View and San Mateo, Daihong Zhao and Yumin Jiang. I'm sure I'm not the only one confused by the similarity in names.
