Fusion (New Restaurant) in Flemington, NJ

We went to this new restaurant last Sunday and enjoyed it very much. It's been open less than a month, hasn't done much advertising yet but seems to be doing well. We don't usually make reservations on a Sunday evening but in this case I'm glad we did. The restaurant was almost full when we arrived around 7 PM, which turned out to be the peak period.

The chef here is from Nepal but he has worked in restaurants around the globe, including the Hilton in NYC. We also heard he has worked in Hawaii and on cruise lines. The food, as you might expect, focuses on Asian cuisine but it has a decidedly French accent. Menu items included dishes from India, China, Indonesia and Thailand. I noticed some dishes that appeared to be strictly Thai but we did not have any of those.

The food was exceptionally good and the prices were very fair. Considering that the restaurant is still in start-up mode, service was more than acceptable. We did find, however, that our server had a tendency to try to bluff his way through questions about the menu, the chef's background, etc. "I don't know" would have worked!

We will definitely go back here. The restaurant is at the corner of Main and Mine, in a building that has been recently renovated. There is a new art gallery next door.
