T-Fusion Steakhouse Opening Party Room in New LocationT Fusion Steakhouse

Since it opened in 2007, T Fusion Steakhouse in Marine Park has been using the second floor of their restaurant for special events but since the demand for these private events has been so high, they are opening a second location Party Room in the area. This will provide a much needed space for their events like Sheva Brachos, weddings and birthday parties. The venue will be able to accommodate about 80-100 people indoors and 50-60 people outdoors. We hear a smoker will be installed to continue the trend that's been sweeping the kosher nation. Events are already being booked for August, so please call the restaurant at 718-998-0002 to inquire. T-Fusion Steakhouse is located at 3223 Quentin Road.
