First time for Fusion

How long have I lived in Aberdeen? How long has Fusion been open? Why did it take someone from near London to introduce me?
For whatever reason, I have only just made the acquaintance of Fusion Bar and Bistro. And a good acquaintance it was too.
We turned up on a drizzly wet night that seemed to characterise summer 2011 in Aberdeen. We had decided to walk, although there were plenty of spaces outside on North Silver Street – even without diplomatic plates for the two reserved spaces outside the Kazakhstan Consulate next door.
The welcome was informal, friendly but very professional as we were ushered to our seats. The menu for the month has a relatively small choice of three or four items in three courses and it is a fixed price. Two courses for £22.95 or three courses for £27.95 – with the expected supplement for steaks.
I am always a little disappointed by restaurants that add a charge, but by the time the bill came I had been so happy with the meal that the “discretionary” percentage of just over 10% seemed reasonable.
What also impressed was the advice offered by sommeler Duncan Walker about the wines and the opportunity to taste before committing.
Now that we have been there, Fusion is firmly established on the list of favourite restaurants.
