After months and months of construction and delays, Alan Yau’s Park Chinois is finally open. He’s known for creating incredible restaurants and then selling them (Wagamama, Yuautcha, the list goes on) and this may just beat them all. At Park Chinois, as they’re more than happy to explain, the theme is the 1930’s, the era of the Cotton Club, Big Band Jazz, and Shanghai’s golden age. After a dinner of Shanghai-style delights like Bang Bang Chicken Salad and Shabu Shabu, it’s time to dance to some live big band swing in the gilded ballroom—it’s the stuff of pure fantasy.
