Welcome. Con-Fusion, or rather, "with fusion", is our newest abstraction in the opportunistic neighborhood of Boyle Heights. Here at Con-Fusion, each dish is a frantic compilation of ingredients, an erratic symphony of ideas and flavors spanning cultures and peoples. You might get a fun new twist on a country's signature dish, a hastily assimilated appetizer, two cuisines that belong nowhere near each other, or something that quite honestly we knew was a bad idea all along. So sit down, enjoy yourself, and pretend like you understand what we're doing. In addition, our sister restaurant, Cucina Con-Fusion, will be opening in Portland in the Fall.

Danny Palumbo is chef and part owner of Con-Fusion and one half of the brains behind critically acclaimed restaurants Lil' Buco and Abbrevs. Danny believes that sustainable food is important, the environment is good, and other assurances that you need to hear. After stepping into the watchful public eye last year, Danny decided to get involved in the community. His foundation, Taste Before It's Too Late, is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching Caucasian children how to season food. You also might recognize Danny from his television appearances within the last year, which include being a celebrity judge on Chopped: Old People, Season 2 of Somebody's Getting a Fucking Restaurant, and Saute Showdown with Casey Anthony.
Anthony Palumbo is part owner and general manager at Con-Fusion. A stalwart in the fine dining scene in Texas, Anthony has made a career out of elevating food for people who can afford it. He is also a great guy and is super duper involved in the community. When he's not at Con-Fusion, Anthony can be found teaching his community center cooking classes which show kids in urban communities how to prepare duck confit and sweetbreads. Like his brother, Anthony has enjoyed national success this year. So far in 2017 he has appeared on Bobby Flay Tries To Smile, Gentrify My Neighborhood!, and Adam Richman Gets Fat Again.
Joe Wagner is a master sommelier and he brings an impressive blend of experience, enthusiasm, and bullshitting to the world of wine and cuisine. Wagner is an active member of the Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, serving as the Vice Consellier wine guy. In 2015, Joe was also awarded the Antonin Carême Medal for his work in sounding like he knows stuff about wine. Wine Enthusiast magazine said of Joe, "A master of the art, when Joe sniffs that glass and swirls a Petit Verdot in his mouth like the most serious man in the world, you believe him." An active member of the community, Joe teaches wine tasting classes to single mothers and some married women depending on what they look like.
Ahead of the trends at every turn, Matt is a financial genius who some say is solely responsible for the renaissance occurring in some of Austin's most forgotten neighborhoods like Little Micronesia and Pig Town. Matt got his start at Ski-Bowl, a ski-ball/poke bowl restaurant that revitalized Ochoa Street. He earned his fortune five years ago when he backed the now famous meatball sub chain Woppers, and his condos on Leches have earned him the nickname, "The Angel of Death." Matt is working closely with the Palumbo Brothers while looking into the sullen industrial outskirts of Pittsburgh to open his new chain of ketchup stores.
