Fusion Conclusion

To conclude this study of South Florida fusion finds, here's what can be deduced: (1) though a fusion restaurant may claim to combine various influences, it may not happen equally on one plate -- or at all, for that matter, (2) just because the dish is pretty doesn't mean it tastes like a dream, and (3) unique combinations can sometimes result in divine unity. Tell that last one to your mom if Dennis Rodman comes to pick you up for a date someday.

Category: Restaurant >

Region: Boynton Beach

Nirvana: 1701 N. Congress Ave., Boynton Beach, 561-752-1932. Open for dinner, 5 p.m. till 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 p.m. till 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Bong: 150 E. Palmetto Park Rd., Boca Raton, 561-368-3338. Lunch 11:30 a.m. till 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; dinner 5 till 10 p.m. Sunday through Tuesday, till midnight Friday and Saturday.

Granted, neither of these restaurants will appeal to the budget conscious, but hey, a trip around the world wouldn't be cheap either. Think of it this way: For the price of one entrée at Bong, you will be exposed to at least four Asian countries. For less than $30, a plate at Nirvana will take your taste buds on a trip from India to the Caribbean and back. Either way, it's a lot cheaper than getting a master's in international affairs and certainly more pleasurable.
