Like a tongue on a flagpole in February, fusion cuisine results from curiosity and a shortage of popsicles. Rein in restless taste buds with today's Groupon: for $13, you get an appetizer and two beer flights or two glasses of wine at Immix Fusion in Cheney (up to a $29.95 value).
Helmed by Napa Valley Culinary Institute of America graduate Matt Irvin, Immix Fusion smelts international flavors into an eclectic menu and serves up a slew of complementary vinos and local beers. Raw-fish aficionados can belly flop into the ahi appetizer, made up of sweet and spicy raw tuna sidestroking in Thai soy sauce and garnished with fresh herbs, cucumber, and wasabi dressing ($9.95). Meanwhile, the roasted Danish brie is flavored with roasted garlic, tomatoes, a balsamic reduction, and fresh basil, making a mouthwatering first course or succulent lip balm ($9.95).
Pair the beer-simmered manila steamer clams, flavored with garlic, shallots, and fresh basil ($11.95), with a beer flight made up of four small glasses of locally brewed Northern Lights tap selections, including the Crystal Bitter Ale, Pale Ale, the seasonal spring Solar Winds, and the house Eagle Brew. Or give arms much-needed exercise by swirling a glass of fermented grapes, such as the Argentinean New Age white blend ($6) or the Sonoma-grown Sebastiani cabernet sauvignon ($8).
