By: Marcia Gagliardi "The Tablehopper"
After some initial sightings by Eater and Grub Street, La Fusion, a Nuevo Latino establishment, has opened as of Wednesday August 24th in the Financial District. It opened in the former Krivaar Cafe space, which is a tiny one.
Chef-owner Javier Madero is reportedly a native of Mexico City but has cooked all over the world. The menu (take a look at it here) includes a variety of small plates served family style, including a number of ceviches, like a Spanish mackerel cebiche ($11) with charred skin, citrus wedges, lime juice, and huacatay mint sauce. A highlight is the rotisserie chicken, available by the quarter, half, or whole, and served with warm bread salad, one side dish, and aioli sauce ($8–$19.95). There are also empanadas ($5.50–$8), and small hot plates like beef ribs ($16) braised in dark beer, cilantro, huacatay, served with carrots and corn purée. Hours are lunch Mon–Fri 10:30am–3pm, happy hour Wed–Fri 3pm–6pm, and dinner Mon–Sat 5pm–10pm. And for the “eat at your desk” types, take-out is available.
475 Pine St. at Kearny, 415-781-0894.
