Oh Fusion | Lakeview | Asian, Japanese | Restaurant
New Japanese restaurant in the space that was formerly Katachi.

Our Review

Housed in the former Katachi space across the street from the Sheridan Red Line stop, Oh Fusion is a sushi restaurant targeted to revelers who want an alternative to greasy pizza or tacos. Their late-night dinner menu starts at 11 PM and runs till 4 AM, offering soup, an appetizer, and an entree like tempura donburi or yakisoba for a recession-friendly $7; sushi entrees are just a few bucks more. As a prime-time dinner destination, though, there’s little to make it stand out from dozens of other neighborhood sushi joints—it’s BYOB and reasonably priced, but the supposed “fusion” cuisine emerges in the form of oddball dishes like lackluster bacon-and-garlic-wrapped bread sticks and, anomalously, New England clam chowder and “pizza canapes.” The restaurant itself is cozy and intimate, with a chic, minimalist black-and-white decor and tables set with tiny china dishes, cups, and chopstick holders that wouldn’t seem out of place in a child’s dollhouse. Japanese basics like salmon sashimi and yaki gyoza were uninspiring; more inventive dishes like tuna and avocado with a spicy pollack roe mayonnaise were more successful.
