Executive Chef Joe Kim has built an environment at 5 Fusion that is filled with passion, creativity, and a true desire to push the limits of cuisine in Bend.  In a nod to his talents, he has received three nominations for a James Beard Foundation award for Best Chef in the Northwest – the first Central Oregon chef to receive this honor. 

The Fusion 5 Charity Dinner Series is part of an ongoing effort by the 5 Fusion team to increase community support and awareness of local non-profit organizations.   “A key reason we even exist is to give back to our community.  It’s a huge part of our mission,” relates co-owner Lilian Chu. “We began our Charity Dinner Series as a way to support the non-profits who make Central Oregon the best place to live and thrive.”
