Upscale Asian Fusion?
Are there any upscale Asian Fusion restaurants in Boston or the Boston area, besides Blue Ginger? Thanks for any recommendations.
Not sure how UPSCALE the restaurant needs to be. However, I will recommend "All Seasons Table" which is located at 64 pleasant stree in Malden. If you search the board you will find numerous postings about this restaurant. I think they have very good sushi for the price - I especially like the "Chirashi Dunbori"
you may want to try oishii 2 in the so. end; wicked wicked expensive.
clio usually does a number of innovative /cutting edge asian inspired things on their menu. personally, i've never thought much of blue ginger; nothing has wowed me there, unfortunately.
Maxwell's 148 in Natick is an Italian Asian fusion place. I think that is really wierd and we have not been for a long time but there are a lot of fans out there.
Good Indian restaurants with a Desi Chinese section on their menus: Namaskar, Grain and Salt, Punjab Palace.
French/Indian fusion: Mantra (though frankly I haven't been for dinner in a looong time.)
French and mostly South Asian fusion, with some other influences (Viet, Thai, Japanese): Banq.
French/Japanese (though much subtler fusion than most): Clio
Upscale in what sense? Price? Decor? It's more mid-scale pricewise but Gari in Coolidge Corner is the only fusion place in the area that I actually like. It's predominantly Japanese, with some American influence, and pulls it off well. It's quite small, a dozen or so two-tops plus a few seats at the sushi bar, with a modern, tasteful decor and very friendly service.
