A good sushi chef is an expert at handling raw fish, as well as wrangling choice grains from roving herds of rice. Enjoy a hard-fought roll with this Groupon.
$55 for a Japanese Fusion Dinner for Two (Up to $114 Total Value)
The dinner includes the following:
- Chef's-selection sushi platter (a $20 value)
- Two appetizers (up to a $13 value each)
- Two entrees (up to a $34 value each)
The Williamsburg menu of Zagat -rated, Michelin-recommended fare includes hot and cold appetizers such as Chilean sea bass with miso and roasted duck in a lime-mint-hoisin reduction, as well as fusion entrees ranging from chargrilled filet mignon with shitake mushrooms to lobster and shrimp risotto. This deal is only valid at the Williamsburg location and does not include the lamb and kumamoto oyster appetizers or the rack of lamb entree.
Though Fushimi Modern Japanese Cuisine & Lounge boasts contemporary decor aesthetics and fusion flavor flourishes, its sushi is deeply rooted in tradition. Chefs may reinterpret the presentation of their Japanese staples—such as the tuna sashimi, which they set on broad leaves next to bean-sprout-entangled roe—but they still ring true to traditional flavors. By contrast, cooked fusion entrees tend to incorporate the unconventional, from truffle teriyaki sauce to pineapple-lemon jam.
The decor also melds old and new. The neon-lit Williamsburg location has a sleek feel, its booths nestled in large circular openings that recall subway tunnels or the oversized portals of Paul Bunyan's mythical submarine. At the bar at the Staten Island location, crimson light filters through a canopy of metallic foliage, casting a moody aura across Buddhist statuettes imported from Asia. In Bay Ridge, the stateliness of traditional chandeliers contrasts with the bold colors of wall-sized photographs.
