Tashan, the high-style modern Indian destination, has been bravely holding down the fort after dark at Broad and Catharine Streets.

Synergy is a good thing. It will get company this fall right next door at 777 S. Broad St. in the form of a yet-to-be-named Asian fusion restaurant from Kelvin Lee Sin, owner of Buddha in Kansas City, Mo.

The 4,100 square footer, with dining room and bar seating for about 75 people (plus about 20 outside in season), will offer sushi, Thai, and Chinese cuisine with an upbeat vibe and moderate prices.
