I don’t really have anything against Asian fusion restaurants. In fact, I usually like the food because the dishes are often inventive and flavorful. I just find the concept sort of… tired. That’s why I was surprised to hear that Masa 14, which opened in late September in my mid-city neighborhood, was to serve Latin-Asian inspired cuisine. I had flashbacks to the 1990’s when I went to Jean George’s NYC restaurant Vong (now closed). But I’m even more surprised that every time I walk by Masa 14, I find it completely packed with people. So maybe I’m wrong.
