Concerto Fusion

Reservations tonight at Concerto Fusion in Morrisville, PA. The menu looks great, and we have heard nothing but good things, so check them out at: Review to come soon! 2 South Delmorr Avenue Morrisville, PA 19067 Phone: 215.428.2899 Fax: 215.428.3899 Upon driving up, we were amazed at how weird the location was, just to the left of the "Trenton Makes" bridge as you cross over the river from the Jersey side. Upon entering, you are greeted by a beautiful water wall, that sets the ambiance for the restaurant. To the right you will find the sushi bar, and to the left, and host stand. On the opposite side of the water wall, lies the bar, which look really nice! We arrived about 45 minutes early for our reservation, but were seated anyway. The restaurant was definitely crowded, bu not at max capacity. We were sat at a table off of the main dining room, on the lower level to the right of the host stand. They did a nice job breaking this area up from the waiting area by hanging some odd plastic like strings from the ceiling in front of the 3 tables situated here. They were very strange to see, but very cool, and it worked perfectly for them. On looking over the wine list, they have a list of a few good wines that you will not normally find in stores. We ended up having a 2006 Chateau Lamothe Vincent Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux that was tasty. It had a great sauv banc color in the glass, and didn't have the sweetness of your typical Marlboro sauv blanc. All in all it was a good wine for $28. Next were the appetizers, and we both ordered the spring rolls at $3, along with the Caribbean Phyllo Crusted Prawns at $8. The spring rolls were massive, with 4 large pieces cut and standing straight up on the plate over duck sauce. The presentation was gorgeous, and the ingredients were very fresh. Gorgeous color on everything and the sauce had a nice bit of heat to hit. The prawns were fabulous, and the phyllo was almost like pasta, wrapped around each prawn. They were gently fried to perfection, and served over a mango and guacamole salsa. All in all, A+ on the appetizers! Dinner was next, and Zelda ordered the cashew chicken($10), and I ordered the General Tso's($13). Both were magnificent large portions, served with white rice. The cashews were raw, and they could have put more in the dish, but all in all, it was very good. The General Tso's was breaded and cooked perfectly with a great sauce. The sauce did not overwhelm the chicken, and it also did not smother it, making it soggy. I would order this again sometime. Service was good, and all the wait staff was Asian. They were busy, and seemed to be under-manned, but they moved their tails and got the job done with no problems. For the money, you really cannot beat this place. All the food was good, the wine was excellent, and did not have the typical 300% restaurant markups. Total bill was $67 and change, which is excellent for a bottle of wine, 3 apps, and 2 entrees. Unfortunately, we didn't have room for dessert, but what can you do? Upon leaving, we were greeted by the owner, and he asked us if everything was OK, and of course we told him we would be back...and we will be. This is a great restaurant, and probably the closest good "Asian cuisine" to where we live. Check out their menu on their site as it is huge. They have a great selection of Japanese dishes, as well as the classic Chinese cuisine, and sushi. Overall, I give them 9 out of 10 stars, and I look forward to trying them for lunch sometime!
