    Plasmonic metasurfaces supporting collective lattice resonances have attracted increasing interest due to their exciting properties of strong spatial coherence and enhanced light-matter interaction. Although the focusing of light by high-numerical-aperture (NA) objectives provides an essential way to boost the field intensities, it remains challenging to excite high-quality resonances by using high-NA objectives due to strong angular dispersion. Here, we address this challenge by employing the physics of bound states in the continuum (BICs). We design a novel anisotropic plasmonic metasurface combining a two-dimensional lattice of high-aspect-ratio pillars with a one-dimensional plasmonic grating, fabricated by a two-photon polymerization technique and gold sputtering. We demonstrate experimentally multiple resonances with absorption amplitudes exceeding 80% at mid-IR using an NA = 0.4 reflective objective. This is enabled by the weak angular dispersion of quasi-BIC resonances in such hybrid plasmonic metasurfaces. Our results suggest novel strategies for designing photonic devices that manipulate focused light with a strong field concentration.
