Four Seasons Restaurant Review

: This Four Seasons is not the big hotel chain; the name refers to the cuisines of four nations that are small in size but big in culinary cachet, namely China, Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand. United by the Mekong River basin and a shared history of spice and cultural exchange, one cuisine flows into another. It’s a concept restaurant with an impressive corps of servers that helps diners navigate through some thick culinary underbrush. There’s a large, rambling menu featuring some of the more classic dishes from each country. Won ton soup and a popular nime chow from China. Vietnamese spring rolls, made with a light hand from rice paper wrappers. Cambodian-style chicken wings, redolent of fish sauce, lemon grass and ground peanuts (among the most authentic dishes, since the owners come from Cambodia). Noodles in every guise imaginable. Four Seasons is the rare Asian restaurant that diffuses the cultural confusion by adding instead of taking away.
