Identity Crisis

In today's mail, I thumbed through a mailer that includes coupons to local restaurants. The ad in front of me caused me to scratch my head for several minutes as I tried to make sense of Bistro 1051. When I hear Bistro, I immediately think a quaint French restaurant. So what do they serve according to their tagline? French? Nope. It is an Italian seafood grill... and wait for it... sushi bar. How bizarre is it to combine Italian and Japanese food? The owner of this place has got to be out of his mind. Would you be tempted to go to this place? It boggles my mind to think that someone probably spent a large amount of money to bring this concept to life.
Does seem like an odd combination! Like the photo!

Haha Chris, that reminds me of "Vinny's Grille & Sushi Bar" in a nearby town. I've never been there because it just doesn't sound right, but they have good reviews :)

I saw a Mexican-Italian-American Bar and Grill downtown yesterday. Maybe it's the new thing?

I get the connection between sushi and seafood; but how does the Italian part fit into that, I wonder? May I have risotto with my smoked salmon sushi instead of shari rice?

I'm so glad you found something humorous in the mail! I am thinking and praying for Chloe and family again today.

I went to a restaurant on Vancouver island which sold 'traditional N American', Italian and Indian and quite a few of the dishes were a hotch potch of the three (not a fusion!) - needless to say none were very good!

funny coincidence I was recently having a conversation with a group of people about odd food combinations and yes Italian-Japanese was one of them, but it is a very popular combo in Japan ....
