West East was one of my favorite places to go for good Asian fusion. Danny Wu, the previous owner ran the place well and knew most of the patrons. Went there Saturday night and it has apparently been sold to one of the regular diners (who is in the business).
Although they have maintained the Asian fusion theme to a degree, I found it more of a clash than a fusion with Asian and American dishes trying mainly just to co-exist on the same menu The food was just OK and had lost much of its spark and flavor (although the spring rolls were still good).
The clientele seems to have aged by two generations (no offence, but I'm in my 50s and I felt like a teenager) and the ambiance felt more like a Florida early bird place. Service seems to also have declined. Had to ask for plates for the shared appetizer and then when the main course came, the waiter tried to put our meals on the table without removing the empty pates first...had to ask him to remove them.
It was actually busy interestingly enough, but it seemed to be busy with a clientele that has never eaten anywhere but in the Long Island suburbs. Wouldn't last a week in Manhattan.
