A new restaurant called Tapas Fusion is setting up on the north end of the Albertson's shopping center at 2970 N. Campbell Ave., where Elle Wine Bistro used to be. We hear it will serve tapas and food from around the world with an emphasis on infusing those dishes with South American flavors. That sounds awesome.
From an e-mail received this morning:
Tapas Fusion is owned by Chef Violeta Rodriguez and General Manager, Mary Bellin. The two friends began planning this restaurant over a year ago and seriously looked at 9 places before deciding on the location at 2970 N Campbell Ave. We signed the lease in May 2012 and have been cleaning and ordering supplies ever since. Luckily, the restaurant was fully equipped and we have only had to add the rotisserie for our featured menu item, Peruvian Chicken or Pollo al Spiedo. It has a crispy skin and infusion of flavors that make the meat juicy. The menu will be completed and available on our new website Tapasfusiontucson.com. The website is under construction for the next day or two.
The original signs for Elle Wine Bistro are still on the road and building. The signs will be removed and replaced with our logo ASAP. Just a note, we are not taking over Elle nor have anything to do with the former restaurant. We have leased the space and equipment from the property management company.
