Hello beautiful people. We’ve made it to the weekend. Whooopeeee! And I get a bonus day on Monday. Our office is closed for Presidents Day. Bring on the long weekend. My husband and I went to dinner earlier in he week. We actually went to a new locally owned restaurant. We try to do that as often as possible rather than go to chain restaurants. Guys it was so good that I have to do a restaurant review. I know that all of you have a great locally owned restaurant near you. Don’t you just love it when you find one that is so good it makes you want to frequent it as much as possible.
I am so excited to tell you about this newly found restaurant. Fusion is located on what we call restaurant row here in my town. We were not certain what to expect from this restaurant. It isn’t in a large location but upon walking in we were in love with the bar and the atmosphere. I am a martini gal and I was super excited to see that they had a large selection of them on the bar menu. I had two. The first, my usual, dirty martini. Can I tell you that it was the best one that I have had in our area since my favorite bartender stopped working at another local restaurant. I also had a cucumber martini. Oh my goodness. It was so good. They actually dust the rim of the glass with tahini. It is sour and sweet with a tiny hint of citrus and spice. I had never tasted it before but boy did they knock that one out of the park.
Our dinner selections were absolutely delicious. My husband had Street Taquitos. I am not a huge Mexican food fan but they looked so good. They came with a salsa verde and he couldn’t stop raving about them. I on the other had was in the mood for something with a little pasta. My entree was Pollo Carciofo. Y’all I mean, butter my biscuits and put me in heaven. This meal was amazing. A grilled chicken with mushrooms, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, and a very fine angel hair pasta in a butter garlic sauce. It was so light but so filling. I don’t eat a lot of pasta because of my devil of a belly but, this pasta was so thin that I had no stomach problems at all. It almost had a Greek chicken feel to it. I can promise it will be ordered again by this gal. Wow just wow.
They have so many different types of foods to choose from. Burgers to sandwiches. Tacos to Pasta. Seafood to stuffed mushrooms. We were so impressed with the entrees that we decided to have dessert. We pretty much never do that. We elected to because it had been a bit since we had been to dinner. Can I say that I am sooooo glad that we did. We relied on the bartender to help us in this matter. The choices were so hard. Key lime pie, chocolate cake, tiramisu and that was just a few. We settled on Blueberry Cheesecake. Y’all it wasn’t a frozen cheesecake. The crust was graham cracker with the strongest cinnamon flavor. Never would I have thought cinnamon and blueberry would go together but boy does it. We’ll get that again too lol. I was so surprised in our bill. My hubby had 2 beers, I had 2 martini’s, an appetizer, two entrees, and dessert. I was a little afraid. All of that food and the bill was only $70.00.
If you are ever up in the Northeast Tennessee area you MUST make a trip to Fusion Restaurant. Wear your stretchy britches and go hungry. I promise you wont regret it. For those of you that live here, if you haven’t went, well shame on you lol. Get yourself over there and support this local business. It’s so yummy. Go this weekend. Go now! Have a wonderfully blessed evening and a great Valentines Day weekend. ❤️Always
