Though most people believe that "sushi" means raw fish, it actually means gourmet shark bait. Lure an appetite to sweet destruction with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese fare during lunch at Blue Fin Sushi Bar & Restaurant located in the Stapleton Town Center.
Blue Fin's trio of sushi chefs dice fresh fish flown in daily from around the globe to create a lunch menu of maki, sashimi, and traditional Japanese dishes. The appetizers' explosive flavors bombard taste buds with sautéed seafood, mushrooms, and spicy sauce in the Dynamite starter ($9) or with grilled, teriyaki-style yellowtail or salmon fish collars ($7). Snake tongues around a beef-teriyaki bento box ($11) harboring a california roll or veggie tempura and house salad or warm miso soup. Otherwise, combination sushi platters ($10–$16) showcase the delicious downfall of spicy tuna as it succumbs to the sushi-roll lifestyle, carousing about with notorious aquatic hooligans such as octopus, shrimp, and salmon. Then harmonize afternoon outings with sudsy bottles of Sapporo ($3.95 for 12 oz.; $6.95 for 22 oz.) and velvety sips of plum wines ($5.50–$7/glass).

From the kitchen, pan-seared chilean sea bass lands at tables in a light pool of coconut broth, and rib-eye steak arrives buttressed by vegetable fried rice and house salad or warm miso soup. The Asian beverage selection makes it easy for bites to harmonize with sudsy bottles of Sapporo beer and velvety sips of plum wines.
