Saving A Local Sushi Sensation
“Don’t it always seem to go
“That you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone?”
-Joni Mitchell “Big Yellow Taxi”
“Remember that great little place we used to go to? Well, I went past there today and they’re closed! Can you believe it? The food was great and it was a fun kind of place to go and we used to meet friends there all the time.
I’m really going to miss it.”
“Yeah, maybe we should have gone there more often?”
A familiar lament in every town across the country begins, “Whatever happened to that one place......?”
Well, what happened was that for whatever reason business slowed down.
There exists what we at N3 World Headquarters and Butterfly Redemption Center would consider to be an epicurean gem in our midst. One of those singular spots specializing in providing innovative and appetizing options to the standard fare available in many eateries throughout our parts.
We’re talking about Fuego, Grant’s gastronomical godsend where the food is downright delightful from the kitchen creations crafted from the culinary skills of Alex Luther and Stevie Milligan to the scrumptious sushi, a newly discovered dining delight for some and an ongoing culinary connection for others.
A recent sojourn to the source of such satisfying sustenance brought to mind previous visits to this enticing eating establishment and the far too lengthy lapse between such visits.If you are like most folks in the area there may have been a little reluctance toward taking the time to drive to Grant this summer. There was, shall we say, a little bit of construction these past months.. You know, the kind that closes roads and creates detours, down time and sometimes moderately disturbed drivers.
This very necessary infrastructure improvement event likely put a bit of hurt on all downtown businesses, but a big part of the food business is easy access. Folks want to get there and get out with a minimum of trouble which is probably why you don’t see any dining establishments located in the middle of roundabouts.
And this past summer of road crews, big machines and plenty of dust put a bit of hurt on Fuego.
Now they are stepping it up and looking to keep their enticing edibles coming out of the storefront eatery that exudes charm as well as some of the most intriguing and tasty food to be found in our parts.
Fuego is is the kind of place that draws folks looking for more than a burger and fries, pizza or some form of smothered chicken. This is a gastronomical adventure and given the fine fare served up during our recent visit we at N3 encourage former patrons and those who have yet to experience Fuego to do so soon.
Like this week.
Because without Fuego the epicurean landscape of our area would be a little diminished.
They don’t just make and sell food at Fuego.
They deliver a dining experience to be savored.
And now is a good time to grab hold of that experience.
Here is a recent review from N3 contributor and fellow foodie Alexis Mercer:
Fuego is located at 21 W Main in downtown Grant. For information or take out call 231.282.7151 or visit Fuego: A Fusion Kitchen on facebook
