FUSE Restaurant Entertainment Emporium is a newer establishment as it opened earlier this year and is located in downtown Toronto's Corktown district at 366 Queen St. E. With my main knowledge of this place being in relation to events, I was very interested to check out their menu and try some of the various dished offerred...
Upon arrival, I was delighted to see the look and design inside the space. It had a very nice and welcoming ambiance. The oldschool R&B music playing in the background also helped to create a nice vibe as well.
To start we ordered some cocktails. I had the Tequila Sunrise/Sunset and my friends both got the Planters Punch. I love fruity cocktails so was looking forward to trying these ones out. We all really enjoyed our drinks and so had a couple rounds of them lol. I also like that they were presented nicely with fruit garnishes. The serving size of the drinks were great as well.

Everything tasted good. I especially loved the presentation of the Coconut Shrimp Cocktail in the martini glass. The shrimp was good, however I was not too much of the fan of the sauce the shrimp was in. On the other hand, one of my friends was fine with taste of the sauce. The Sizzling 'Kalbi' Beef was good as well and I definitely loved that it was a sizzling plate which added something fun to its presentation. The portion size of the Beef was a bit smaller than I was expecting, however I was still satisfied. Moreover, the Bruschetta was delicious and I really enjoyed the cornbread as well.

As we went later into the evening, the live music band began to start their performance. I am a big fan of live music so really enjoyed having this addition to our evening at FUSE. The band that night was great and the lead singer had amazing vocals! This definitely enhanced the vibe in the space.
In addition, there is a 2nd floor to FUSE which houses their event/party space. There happened to be a party happening while were there so we went up for a bit and checked it out.

Therefore, if you are ever looking for a new restaurant to try with a great vibe as well as live music and turns into a lounge, FUSE Restaurant Entertainment Emporium would be a great place to start.
