Remember fusion? It was the food trend du jour a few years ago, when Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s combination of Asian ingredients and French technique seemed like revolutionary cuisine. Now, of course, Peking duck a l’orange is as dated as restaurants without online reservations. Luckily, Picasso Asian Fusions is not really a fusion place so much as a local takeout spot for people who can’t decide whether they want Japanese or Thai for dinner. The massive menu has both: More than two dozen maki, as well as sushi and sashimi à la carte, udon noodles and teriyaki, and curries and basil sautés on the Thai side. There are a few ill-thought-out blends (tuna a l’orange, anyone?), mostly as appetizers; for a change of pace, stick to rolls such as the Jade, with shrimp tempura, papaya, and avocado. But if you can, get takeout. The aquarium-blue walls in the dining room make it feel sort of like a pool; the tank of parrot hake fish is diverting, and the backyard is perfectly nice. The restaurant’s name, a waitress said, comes from the idea that the food is like art. Maybe at Jean-Georges. Here, it’s just dinner.
