T Fusion: seeking opinions

Sorry. It's a steakhouse in the Marine Park section of Brooklyn. Their website is

and here's an old thread from this board from when they opened:

T Fusion: seeking opinions

Friends are taking us to T Fusion for dinner this coming Sunday. Never been there before, so we'd appreciate advice on what to get, what to avoid, etc. I found some older posts on this Board from when it opened a few years back. Those reviews were decidedly mixed, as were reviews I found on Yelp and Google. So anything more up-to-date would be appreciated. TIA

Yasher koach Craig!

So how can an interested party get a hold of some of you 2010 wine before it's too late. Or is it?

What's the best kosher restaurant in metro Washington DC?

We are going to DC for the weekend and are looking for a great meal Sunday evening to top it off. Willing to drive to the surrounding suburbs for a restaurant worth driving to. TIA.

Kosher restaurants in Buenos Aires

I did a search and found a few recs here:

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/783566

But it didn't include any addresses. Is there a list online from the local vaad or a shul? Also, looking for more recommendations, esp dairy, because one member of our party is a vegetarian. Thanks.

Kosher restaurants in Montreal - anything for vegetarians?

Will be in Montreal this weekend, so I searched the board and like another poster 2 weeks ago, found a long thread from a year ago. One complication we have is that one person in our party is a vegetarian. Do the recommended meat places (e.g., Chops, Morty's) offer anything that works for her? Also, is El Morocco kosher or not at this point in time? We'll be staying downtown? TIA

Going to Cleveland; any recommendations?

Thanks for the information. Kind of demoralizing, isn't it? The kosher community in Cleveland is pretty large compared to most US cities yet it seems they can't support more than 1 kosher restaurant (and then only as an adjunct to their catering business).

Going to Cleveland; any recommendations?

Visiting our niece, who is in school there. Would like to take her out for dinner -- someplace nice if possible.

Middle-aged couple seeking bar in Brooklyn

Wanna go somewhere where we can sit at a table, drink decent beer or wine, eat if we want (but don't have to) and hear ourselves talk. Does it exist?

Kosher Restaurants in Eilat, Israel

Arriving Monday for 48-hour stay. Any good kosher sit-downs? What about the hotel restaurants? Or should I just stick with falafel and schawarma?

First trip to Israel in 30 years

When you mentioned that Caffit is yummy, it made me scratch my head, so I went and double-checked my credit-card receipt. We didn't eat at Masaryk; we ate at Caffit! (must've tried Masaryk first, but it was closing; they're on two successive corners). Now what about that evacuation?

First trip to Israel in 30 years

Many thanks for the replies. We have been in Jerusalem since Thursday night and the recs have been fantastically helpful.

Stocked up kitchen at Supersol Deal (total zoo Friday 12noon, but hey) and got shabbat takeout at Tzidkiyahu (very good overall, sliced beef very impressive, tabouleh too salty).

Had 2 major dinners to-date: one at Masaryk, the other at Yo-Ja. Very happy with both. Masaryk portions were huge; never saw as many ravioli in a ravioli entree as my wife got in hers. Downsides: the ravioli was a bit salty, and server was a bit weird. Yo-Ja's sushi a little expensive (but very fresh), and the beef in an entree was substandard compared to what I'm used to in NYC, but still very positive overall, including excellent service.

As far as I can tell, the new smaller Eucalyptus exists, at 7 Hyrkanos St (just north of Safra Sq). Have not gone there yet, but I agree that the write-ups are very tempting.

Can't weigh in on the Aldo question yet. Looked for the ice cream next to the Coffee Mill on Emek Refa'im but have not found it. The store literally next door is closed (don't remember the name exactly, but it included "chocolate"); could that be it? Or could it be Milk, which sells ice cream and decent coffee, but is across the street.

Bought decent bagels this morning at a place next door to Tzidkiyahu's on west side of Emek, just south of Rahel Imeinu. Also some not-exorbitant lox (a little salty, but I like it that way).

More questions:

At our 2 sit-down dinners to date, service was not included in the tab. This is a distinct change from the way I remember it in Israel. Something new? Or did we just catch the exceptions? And if service is no longer included, what's a normal tip -- 15%?

Also, am I wasting my time eating beef around here? Is it still all from Argentina, and still not all that good?

Finally, is it a coincidence that we've had a few oversalted dishes in only a few days? Are they really into salt here?

Once again, I greatly appreciate all the helpful advice to-date and hope to report back before we head home.

First trip to Israel in 30 years

For most of the trip, our "base" will be an apartment in the German Colony in Jerusalem. We will have access to a car.

Seeking Recommendations
1) Good places to shop for food? (supermarkets, takeout for shabbat.)
2) Restaurants? meat? dairy? vegetarian/vegan?

General Questions
1) I hear that there are different "degrees" of kosher in restaurants. Can someone explain?
2) How hard is it to find kosher restaurants outside of Jerusalem?

Pleasantly surprised at Prime

I'm glad it worked out for you. I haven't been there for a while, but I always found the food reliably wonderful. The problem was that so much else was reliably unpleasant -- the exorbitant prices, the extreme noise (no, it's not NY), and the erratic service. Worst of all, I never got a table, despite a reservation, without having to wait at least 25 minutes (sometimes 45). Ultimately, that was the last straw for me.

Vegan or Vegetarian in DC?

Will be in town this week with a car and Metro access.

Sweet Life pastry in Belle Harbor?

Sorry not to respond sooner, but I didn't get back to Belle Harbor until today. Had Sweet Life pastries at a Purim se'udah there. Very declicious, esp a couple of different kinds of muffins. Anyhow, you can email them at sweetlifepastry@gmail.com. Chag Same'ach.

Sweet Life pastry in Belle Harbor?

I don't believe it's a store you can go to. It's a private caterer, primarily pastry, baked goods, deserts, etc. But they have been known to do meals and parties too. Catered meals for the local Sephardic shul over Shmini Atzeret/Simhat Torah -- big hit locally. My experience with their stuff has been when visiting people I know in the Belle Harbor nabe, and it's been close to 100% positive. Interesting story too. The owner trained at a (goyishe) culinary school, yet kept kosher the whole time.

Boston Area Restaurants

Will be visiting Boston for a few days in a few weeks. Looking for places to go for a decent dinner. Will be staying in Newton vicinity but will have access to a car, so anything within a 30-45 min drive would be fine.

Is there a kosher food stand @ Shea Stadium?

Thanks for the link. It mentions the stand in right field, but also says: "Other locations include portables on the Loge and Mezzanine levels of the stadium." Anyone have experience with those?

Is there a kosher food stand @ Shea Stadium?

And if so, where in the stadium is it? Is there more than one? What do they serve? Is it any good?

kosher weddings - not outrageously priced or an outrageous amount of food

The major caterers can help you find places. IIRC, Prestige's website actually lists numerous venues in greater NYC.

I have personally used Main Event and Catering by Celebration (Mauzone) and both did very well by me but weren't cheap. There are ways of cutting costs (e.g., passed hors d'oeurves vs. a full shmorg or by serving everyone the same main course rather than offering a choice of beef or chicken or fish, or even serving buffet-style, which reduces waitstaff costs without skimping on the food) + you can save on weeknights or non-prime dates (no June, no post-Tishab'av) if you find those tolerable.

The ultra-frum wedding factories like Chynka can give you very low prices, but sadly, you often get what you pay for. My guy at Main Event claimed that there are places in Monsey that work for $25pp.

My advice is to call a caterer and tell them what your budget is. If they can't work within it, they'll tell you. If they can, they'll do their best to sell you on them. (But if your budget is $60pp, tell them $50pp, because their job is to take you higher.)

Good luck & Mazal Tov!

Domani or Tevere 84, in NYC

Used to eat at Domani fairly frequently. The back room is much more comfortable than Tevere, which is really cramped and the service was v. good too and we also liked the food.

But the last time we went (probably last summer) it appeared that the place had changed hands. The staff, which had been there for quite a while, was all gone, and the replacements were OK, but unfamiliar. And the food seemed a bit off.

Since then, we've gone to Tevere a few times. It's really quite good, but still very cramped, really expensive and often booked. For spur-of-the-moment dining, we head to Le Marais now. Very dependable and literally half the price of Tevere.

BTW, Tevere has dropped the "84" from their name, although they're still on 84th St.

Restaurant open on Shabbos in NYC?

Also Darna. Also meals at midtown chabad. All pay-in-advance.

Plus there are some places that are kosher and open for normal business on Shabbat. Vegetarian Indian places. Also non-glatt delis (in Manhattan: Ben's, Fine and Schapiro, Pastrami Queen).
