Address: M Resort, 12300 Las Vegas Blvd. S.
Status: Opens at 5 p.m. Tuesday
Seonkyoung Longest went on the Food Network's Restaurant Express with zero experience working in a restaurant and came out the winner, earning her a place at the M Resort. Host Robert Irvine was continually impressed with her food, what she calls an Asian fusion mix. After a seven-week battle that featured contestants competing for a chance to open a restaurant at the resort and traveling in a souped up bus, Jayde Fuzion opens Tuesday at the M Resort in place of Marinelli's Italian restaurant.
The finale last night featured Longest first fighting her way into the finals by creating one dish that would represent not only the type of food she would serve at her restaurant but a cuisine the resort didn't have. She stuck to her original concept and defeated Jan to go on to the finals, facing the acerbic Adam and his American fare.
Jayde Fuzion features freshly prepared Japanese, Chinese and Korean small plates made with her signature Mississippi flair. Expect to find dim sum, tempura, noodle dishes, fusion specialties and sushi, sashimi and nigiri items.
