If two heads are better than one, then two cuisine-noggins fused into one restaurant-body are better than one. Support admixed eateries and your local thesaurus with today’s Groupon: for $20, you’ll get $40 worth of delicious French-Japanese fusion fare for lunch or dinner at Bushi-Tei, an epicurean hybrid that helps you to expand your cultural palate.

The elegantly modern, candle-lit décor serves as a complementary backdrop for the thoughtfully plated dishes that think aloud, "This place looks great." Stop in for lunch Monday through Saturday and savor the herb-marinated Scottish salmon ($12.50). For dinner, start with the big eye tuna tartare, a cool nibble perked up with coriander seed and wasabi-crème fraiche ($16). For a main course, artfully prepared options include seafood (orata, scallops, tuna), duck (served with mascarpone mustard and dried chutney), and grass-fed tenderloin. Entrees average $20–$30 and include vegetarian omakase choices. Save room for Bushi-Tei’s airy soufflé, a cloudlike indulgence accompanied by a roasted strawberry and organic ice cream ($8.50).


Bushi-Tei’s distinctive French-Japanese flavors were featured on SF Weekly's food blog and Taste Tests blog:

  • What I loved most about the food was the complementary blend of Western and Asian ingredients and flavors. Considering how over-the-top some fusion restaurants can be, Bushi-Tei Bistro keeps its cuisine relatively simple. – Taste Tests
  • But the flourless chocolate cake definitely tastes like France, a light and airy creation rather than the dense one you're used to. – Tamara Palmer, SF Weekly

Yelpers give it four stars, Citysearchers give it 3.5 stars, and 81% of Urbanspooners like it:

  • we wandered into this little restaurant and some how [sic] got incredibly lucky! the host was wonderfully accommodating and pushed two tables together so the two of us could sit close, and our service was unforgettable! – supergirlpw1, Citysearch

Important Moments in Nuclear Fusion

Fusion food is based off the simple principles of a relatively modern concept: nuclear fusion. Here are some important moments in the history of nuclear fusion:

1905: Einstein's famous equation, E = mc2, hypothesizes a fusion-style reaction, while Einstein himself hypothesizes a romance between Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins.
1946: Designer bombs tested at Bikini Atoll create a variety of decorative cloud shapes, including beach ball, dolphin, and silhouette of the United States. 1978: Attempts to use nuclear fusion to prevent magician David Copperfield from appearing on TV are largely successful.
2010: Simultaneous, worldwide experiments with nuclear fusion result in the renewed popularity of player pianos and the transformation of friendly cats into gigantic-instrument-of-mayhem cats.
