The quiet closure of Fusion 84, on Main Street in Sayville, has residents expressing ideas for new types of restaurant options, ranging from a franchise operation to a rumour that an Irish pub is already in process to move into the location.
As Patch reported a few days ago, the site has changed hands every six months to a year for the past several years and might be in need of a karma refresh, as Christine Riffone Pensabene wrote on Patch's Facebook page:
"yes yes YES! this PLACE NEEDS A FENG SHUI EXPERT! I've been saying this for years!!!!!!," she noted.
Several readers commented that the constant turnover in ownership is due more to a rash of restaurant operators who weren't quite passionate about providing compelling menus and food quality.
"It's all about the love you put into your food & location. If you are truly passionate about your craft the people will come no matter where you are located," wrote Christopher Kelly.
