You know, working in the big city with the big job definitely has its perks.

I used to work in downtown Chicago, near some of the best restaurants in the world. Yes, in the world. I have been to many places on this globe and I can definitely tell you that Chicago has some amazing options. One of them is most definitely P.F. Chang’s.

I worked only steps away from one of their restaurants and most of my company “meetings” were held at P.F. Chang’s. Believe me when I say that we did anything but talk about our company’s finances and our goals… We always, always spoke about the beautiful atmosphere and about P.F. Chang’s wonderful food.

Fall Seasonal Menu

Just recently P.F. Chang’s unveiled their new Fall Seasonal Menu, featuring fresh Fall ingredients including, get this, Pumpkin Dessert Wontons!!

And how about the Harvest Vegetable Quinoa “Fried Rice”!?! That dish needs to meet up with me, stat!

The Miso Chicken and the Citrus Mustard Prawns sound just as incredible.

Looks like I’ll need a “meeting” real soon. Hopefully we will finish it off with a couple of their Apple Martinis!
