Unlike some of the storefronts on Sayville's Main Street, the former home of Bullfish Grill didn’t stay vacant for long.
Fusion 84, 298 West Main Street, is now open for business. According to owner Michael Santiago and head Chef Anthony Robertucci, they are off to a great start. They hosted their soft opening last week with a positive response from the crowd. They are excited to be part of the Sayville
community and said many residents have been stopping by to inquire about the official opening.
Santiago, a Medford resident, previously owned restaurants on the East End of Long Island. He is currently arranging the line-up of entertainment and specials, such as live music, Karaoke on Monday nights, and more.
Multiple flat screen TVs line the bar area for patrons who want to stop by for a drink and watch a football game. Happy hour specials will run from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday through Friday. The dining area’s cozy atmosphere is decorated with modern wall art, soft lights, dark hardwood floors and a fireplace to sit by for a romantic dinner.
Chef Robertucci, who previously owned a beachside restaurant in Daytona Beach, Florida for several years, says he is excited about the menu and the ideas and influences came from European, Asian and Mexican cuisine.
“It’s taking contemporary American ideas and improving on those,” he said. Asked about his “must try” item from the menu, he said, “The seafood capellini is out of this world.” The ingredients include squid ink pasta, shrimp, scallops, and baby clams in a tomato fennel bouillon. He is confident that customers will be pleased not only by the taste and different flavors of their food, but the value and service as well.
“You are getting upscale food at an affordable price,” he said. Prices range anywhere from $19 to $30 per entrée. Their website is still in the works but until then, customers can find Fusion 84 on Facebook and Four Square.
