What You'll Get
Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Asian cuisine and drinks at Amber on the Upper East Side.
Amber’s nimble-fingered sushi chefs capture the flavors of the sea with high-quality sushi and artisanal Asian cuisine, served amid undulating-backed booths and carefully crafted stonework. Refreshing vietnamese shrimp summer rolls lounge under piquant canopies of cilantro and chili hoisin sauce ($7), flaunting next year’s reading list while donning a provocative see-through rice-paper wrap. The Upper East Side roll allows lobster and avocado to shimmy along a garland of kiwi and mango sauce ($18) and the Golden Dragon roll bestows good fortune on taste buds with spicy crunchy salmon, avocado, and fresh mango ($15). Visitors in search of nonsushi fare can lancet flaky forkfuls of steamed Chilean sea bass with black-bean sauce, topped with a medley of steamed peas, shiitake mushrooms, and vegetables ($21), or saw into an equally tender spicy filet mignon ($23). A full bar offers innovative drinks, and outdoor seating enlivens the restaurant on sunny, breezy, or money-raining evenings.
