We ate at several places which were "rated" pretty high accordingly to the local literature and ended up being very disappointed in our meals until we took a chance on 5 Fusion. Not expecting much since Bend is located smack dab in the middle of the state, we were so excited with our first dish that we kept ordering more and more to try as much as we could till we couldn't eat any more. It was by far the BEST restaurant we ate at during our vacation in Oregon...this includes places in Portland, too. My most favorite was the calamari with yuzu aioli..the calamari was very small and not chewy at all and that aioli dipping sauce was wonderful! Kudos to the James Beard winning chef! It is worth going during Happy Hour since you can get some of the better appetizers at a discounted price but reservations is highly recommended. I wish we had discovered this gem early on instead of our last night in the Bend area...I would have definitely made a trip a couple more times.
