Asian cuisine evolution

Niche cuisines are driving chain menu development in the Asian segment.

Paulson & Co. and TriArtisan Capital Advisors have closed on their purchase of the Asian casual-dining chain.

TriArtisan Capital Partners and Paulson & Co. will buy the Asian casual-dining chain from Centerbridge, according to Bloomberg.

The casual-dining chain, which began exploring a sale in July, has been owned by Centerbridge Partners since 2012.

Operators are tapping seasonal ingredients and holiday flavors to create new dishes.

The company has hired advisors and has some interested buyers.

A new analysis also shows what differentiates a good user-generated review from a negative one.

The industry showed it's not afraid to stand up to its adversaries on important government issues, and will likely be emboldened going forward by help in the rumble from an unlikely source. It also was fearless in exploiting the opportunities afforded by the P.F. Chang's Olympics. Or something like that.
