The Music Industry is a bit fickle.  One minute they love the technology industry and the next the loathe it.

Chis and his family have created the perfect Chinese Restaurant for North Texas! The food and wine (incredible selection) are top-notch and the service is some of the best my wife and I have experienced in many years. The attention to detail, on target recommendations and delectable food make Yao Fuzi the place to eat. Try the Shanghai Style Lobster or the Beef with Black Pepper...they are wonderful. If you want to impress your friends or business crew take them to Yao Fuzi and enjoy the ride!
