We wrote about a restaurant called Chinese Box in this week's Noshing Around column, but outside of information gleaned from a banner on the exterior we knew very little about it. A reader dropped us an e-mail this morning to let us know that Peter Fung, the owner of Mandarin Grill at 8300 N. Thornydale Road, will be co-owner of the business.
Fung says the place will serve authentic Cantonese and Mandarin fast food. He stressed that the place will not be just another Panda Express and that it will not serve "Americanized Chinese food." The menu will have about 25 items, most of which will fall in the $6 range. He hopes to have it open by the end of April, and would like to open other locations if the first one works out.
Delivery will be available within a three-mile radius. Hours: 10 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Thursday; and 10 a.m. to 3 a.m. on weekends.
