If you fuse it, they will come.
Tony Liu and Tony Asta, owners of Tony's Asian Fusion in East Quogue, flicked on the open sign switch a few weeks ago and, like flies to flourescence, the customers bowed to the centripetal force created by the convergence of Chinese, Japanese and Thai food in one kitchen.
We've done no advertising, nothing, and every Friday and Saturday night we fill every seat and people are waiting to get in. It's probably every restaurant's dream to have that, but it's kind of been our nightmare." Tony Asta said.
Mr Asta was referring to the little kinks that any restaurant experiences during its first few weeks of operations-coordinating the wait-staff, fixing computer problems-bugs that are exacerbated by dining rooms packed to the exits.
But Mr. Liu, who ran Tony's Sushi in Hampton Bays and currently operates Tony's Sushi #2 in East Moriches, and Mr. Asta, a restaurant novice, say the issues are resolved, and they now welcome the throngs.
