    wow that's kind of sad. Though i haven't been there for some time now, when they first opened, the dim sum was very good and they had a lot interesting dishes others didn't have. I heard the original chef left, so things must have gone downhill from there.

      The original chef left within a couple months of opening. TP has been running on fumes for years.

      Shows what a Michelin honorable mention is worth (or perhaps demonstrates they have no clue about Asian cuisine). According to Eater, the new place will be called Lunasia.

        Thanks for the info ipsedixit and Chandavkl.

        "Lunasia"... I seriously hope it's not some fusion, PF Chang's wanna-be. :(
