Sneak Peek: New Restaurant, Fusion, Opens on Georgia Ave.


Back in September we spoke about Fusion. I’m happy to report that they have now opened. As you can see from the photo above they are located at 4815 Georgia Avenue (two storefronts from Moroni’s excellent pizza.) I spoke briefly with the owner, Barry, who described the food as “refined Indian”. The restaurant will seat upto 50 people and will feature a full bar. Though, make no mistake this spot is most definitely a proper restaurant. Barry had previously worked in managerial positions in the very well respected Indian Restaurants – Rasika and Bombay Club. I believe that bodes very well for us. I happen to be a big fan of the Bombay Club. It’s exciting to potentially get a spot of the same caliber up in Petworth. I asked Barry, 35, how he decided on this particular location and he explained it simply – “I live around the corner”. In addition to serving lunch and dinner (when they get their liquor license) Sundays will feature a three course brunch.

I’m especially excited about this restaurant because Barry exhibited such enthusiasm for the neighborhood. He also said on a number of occasions that he is “in it for the long haul”. And it was very nice to hear indeed. Be sure to check them out.
