Mr. Chow, an upscale restaurant that offers Beijing cuisine, could be opening as early as Dec. 29 at the Malibu Country Mart.
The restaurant's owner Michael Chow has taken over and overhauled the former location of Nobu Malibu, which moved from its original location to a beachfront property at 22706 Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.
An employee at the Bevelry Hills location said Mr. Chow in Malibu was initally expected to open on Dec. 17, but that was pushed back because of delays during the construction process. The tentative opening date is now Dec. 29, but that could change, she said.
“The Malibu Country Mart has been the social epicenter of Malibu for many years,” Chow said. “We are overjoyed to join the community.”
Mr. Chow has other locations in Beverly Hills, London, Miami, Las Vegas and New York.
Other restaurants at the Malibu Country Mart include Tra di Noi, authentic Greek cuisine at Taverna Tony and local favorites including John’s Garden, Malibu Kitchen & Gourmet Country Market, Malibu Mutt’s Grill, and Howdy’s Taqueria.
