i'd love to see one of those old-fashioned Chinese-Latinx places (which were usually Cuban, but sometimes from other countries). i don't see someone using "fusion" to signal that, though.

how badly? a close friend of mine from junior high owns one his father started on the upper west side and i've always talked about bringing it over to Queens. it's not an easy feat but I would love to have one.

We do have Jardin de China on Junction, though.

i like Jardin de China. when  i lived in Astoria, my go to was a place called Nuevo Jardin de China, on Broadway. do you know if they are/were related?

Non-Spanish speaking residents not welcome?

They aren't even open yet, jeez. Their facebook page is in English, hopefully that will reassure all of the jingoists on this site.

Just looked at the menu online. What exactly are they fusing?

From website:

"Helena FusiĆ³n Restaurant NYC was established in 2018 by two enterprising brothers who are lovers of fine cuisine and excellent food service. Throughout the years in Colombia, there has been an increased evolution in Colombian cuisine and service. We want to bring this new concept to Jackson Heights and the rest of NYC. Combine a touch of Colombian modernity, high-quality service standards, and a great atmosphere, add top-notch cocktails, and now you have a 5-star dining experience that anyone would be pleased to enjoy."

I think the fusion aspect is old and new or traditional and contemporary, vs. fusion of two different cuisines.
