Fusion Grill: Innovative Chinese on Capitol Hill

I spent a very long weekend in my 2nd favorite city, D.C.  My love for the city has doubled since this trip but let’s talk about one of my pastime favorites:  EATING.

The 8th Street area of Capitol Hill is eclectic to say the least.  If you love busy intown hot spots, then this is the place for you.  Filled with mostly specialty restaurants (you will not find any of the big chain restaurants), you can get any food fix you like in this area.  I got my fix of Chinese  at a very cute spot called Fusion Grill.  Located at 515 8th St S.E., Washington, D.C., Fusion Grill boasts about the fusion of innovation and tradition by serving grilled and traditional Chinese cuisine and some non-Chinese cuisine.  My guest and I went for Sunday breakfast, which traditionally isn’t a meal that’s served in a Chinese restaurant, but to my surprise it was PERFECT.  Our meal consisted of coconut brioche french toast served with ginger maple syrup, two scrambled Amish eggs, shrimp tempura and jumbo lump crabcake.  It was just enough to start a Sunday.  The place was clean, cozy and eclectic.  Service was only ok because we had a new waitress so I’ll chop that up as her having new employee jitters.  But the staff as a whole were friendly and knowledgable.  Every plate that came out looked and smelled delicious especially the organic scrambled tofu that included roasted tomatoes, curry, caramelized onion, pea shoots and sweet potato wedges.  Don’t let tofu scare you away.  Can’t wait to try it out.  If you’re ever in the D.C. area you must check this restaurant out.  Great date spot as well.
