Fantasy Cuisine [Central Ave, Hartsdale]

The closed Cafe Meze/Cafe Azzurri space is now being reopened as "Fantasy Cuisine". Looks like it will be pan-Asian? Not really sure. Any info out there? I can't find anything on line.

  1. One of my neighbors heard that it's going to be Asian.
    Speaking of which, the Little Gems space on Central Ave. (can't rememeber full name) has reopened under another name, and probably another owner. It is now Asian fusion.

      Gem Cuisine in Yonkers has been Tasty House, an Asian-fusion place, since this past Spring:

        I swear--one family/company must own all these fusion places. The menus are almost identical. I love Asian food, but enough already.

          We can thank the Department of Redundancy Department for yet another pan-Asian restaurant. At least it isn't a furniture store.

              Who can we thank for the redundancy of Italian restaurants?
              I guess it's better than a petco.

          Fantasy Cuisine will be on Central Avenue, about a block past Four Corners (Hartsdale) on the east side of the street, in the old Cafe Azzurri/Cafe Meze space. The other place is also on Central Ave., but in Yonkers.

            Thanks. I've put in a request to have the header changed.

              Thanks! I wanted to edit my post to add the location but it wouldn't work.

                For future reference, all you have to do is click Flag (whether it's your post or someone else's) and ask the moderators to change a subject line.

                Now, as for another Asian fusion this point, if I'm heading to Central Ave. for Asian food, I pretty much go H-Mart's food court. No fusion there, but plenty of options at good value. Definitely not "fine dining" though. :)

        2. I read somewhere that it's from the same people behind Dumpling+Noodle in Bronxville.

          1. Yes it is same owners as Dumpling+Noodle and will be specifically Chinese. If its anything like the other restaurant in Bronxville, it will be different than the other local Chinese spots with soup dumplings, handcut noodles, etc. Very fresh and so good!

                  Saw people in the restaurant today. I was apprehensive to go with out knowing the menu.
