The world's first and only official Gucci restaurant — 1921 Gucci — has closed. Their IAPM venue is shuttered and a sign on the front ominously reads: "under internal adjustment". Which usually means they're adjusting all the stuff in the restaurant that can be sold into cash and adjusting off with it. The Gucci Restaurant came to Shanghai in 2015, with stars twinkling in their eyes and dreams swelling in their hearts, trading in contemporary twists on traditional Italian classics, and loosely enforcing a "smart casual" dress code. Like it's done to so many before, Shanghai chewed them up and spit them out, and not even a lukewarm but cautiously positive SmartShanghai.com review ("This is a place to impress moms, the middle-aged, and those who care about money...") could save them. Arrivederci bella ragazza!
