When the summer months arrive, a restaurant’s worthiness becomes contingent on one key factor: the patio. Whether you’re stopping by for apres-work tapas and cocktails, or sitting down for a delicious open-air meal, Fuzion, on Church St., has a patio worth lusting over. We were a bit skeptical about the concept of a Flirt Bar, and speculated that it involved topless, oiled-up manly men ready to finger-feed us bite-sized tapas. Topless men there were not, but delicious drinks, cool, comfy seating, and a plethora of well-dressed and well-groomed imbibers made for excellent people-watching. Surrounding the Flirt Bar is a large dining courtyard. With it’s chic, refreshing decor, you feel like you’re dining nestled in the back garden of a villa in Monaco. Start your meal off with salt-roasted organic beet salad with blood orange, avocado, and fennel and wasabi pea citrus miso dressing (say that five times fast), then sample the charcuterie or indulge in ribs or ravioli with smoked ricotta. After-work drinks and dishing go well with Blueberry Mojitos (delicious) and homecut frites with avocado-scallion aioli. The bustle of Church St. adds to the atmosphere, but the clever decor ensures it won’t disturb your dining experience. We spent a lovely evening sipping drinks and bumping elbows with Sunny Fong on this excellent patio.
