Chinese-run Western establishments have spread throughout Shanghai like wildfire this past year; the most recent being The 1st Seasons, an upmarket Western restaurant offering a truckload of meat, some fusion touches dreamt up by Chef Leo Wang, and film-inspired design. It’s an exciting concept, but one of the weaker entrants in the Chinese-run Western genre. Since we’re talking film, it feels like an average foreign remake of a classic movie: a passable re-imagining with interesting twists, but some elements translate better than others.
