Mr. Chow Eyes Late December Opening

The upscale restaurant, which has taken the place of Nobu, was initially scheduled to open Dec. 17, but that was pushed back.

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.

I want organic food. Will Mr. Chow serve organic? If so, I will frequent the restaurant. If not, I won't. I don't want food that has been contaminated with hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or anything I wouldn't put straight in my mouth! My health is valuable and I will not gamble it upon any culinary roulette table.

judging by all of the complaints that i see on this site regarding traffic and parking, the city of malibu should form a commission to find a bunch of restaurants and shops that no one wants to dine/shop at-hey, no parking issues! Never mind the fact that the restaurant that previously occupied the space was one of the most popular (and most expensive, Mr. $100 chow mein) sushi restaurants on the planet. Honestly, folks...you have too much time on your hands....Get a life!!!

our group was 3 women-the Peking Duck request was confirmed by Keesha at Mr. Chow. we confirmed the qty. of appetisers and entrees with the Peking Duck set for 3 ($68/person) and gave our waiter the choices. The service, our appetisers and entrees that came before the duck were superb. Our waiter surprised us when she asked if we wanted coffee -we said not yet we were waiting for our Peking duck. After a 15 minute wait another waiter told us they didn't have our Peking duck. He offered Gambler's Duck. We said Ok but wanted the crepes the way the Peking Duck is prepared. The many staff members that were so attentive when we first sat down disappeared once they told us they didn't have our duck. 15 mins later we saw the woman at the staging table next to us take duck off the bone and place it in the crepes. One of the women in our group took a bite of her duck crepe and bit into a large duck bone. When the maître d was walking by I stopped him and mentioned the duck bone in the crepe. He said that happened because they don't put Gambler's duck in a crepe- he did not apologise for the bone in her food or take it away. I told the maître d if this was a table of men dining instead of women giving away our Peking duck to another table would have never happened. We did see Peking Duck presentation going on at other tables around us. It's hard to believe that this inferior service still occurs in 2013 to a group of women when they dine out
