Hawaii's first P.F. Chang's China Bistro will soon join the chain's 130 restaurants, located throughout the country.

Hawaii's first P.F. Chang's China Bistro scheduled a blessing for its employees Monday on the eve of its opening. The chain's first Hawaii location is located on the ground floor of The Hokua at 1288 Ala Moana Blvd., a new residential luxury high-rise at Auahi Street and Ala Moana Boulevard.

The chain's first Hawaii location is located on the ground floor of The Hokua at 1288 Ala Moana Blvd., a new residential luxury high-rise at Auahi Street and Ala Moana Boulevard.

The restaurant began taking reservations last week. It officially opens at 11 a.m. Tuesday, and will be open every day for lunch and dinner.

The restaurant chain is also draping a 110-inch lei across P.F. Chang's signature concrete horse statue outside the Auahi Street entrance to the 7,500-square-foot, 282-seat restaurant.

P.F. Chang's is being brought to Hawaii by PFC Hawaii LLC, a partnership agreement with The MacNaughton Group.

PFC Hawaii will open at least two more locations, including an 11,000-square-foot, 375-seat restaurant on the second floor of the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center in Waikiki. That will be the second largest of the chain's 130 restaurants, which are located in all but about a dozen states.
