Fusing international cuisine creates inventive new dishes, wheras fusing international languages still just sounds like Latin. Savor flavors without borders with today’s Groupon: for $34, you get a Japanese fusion dinner for two at Aquamarine (up to a $92 total value). This dinner for two includes the following:
- Two appetizers (up to a $16 value each)
- Two entrees (up to a $21 value each)
- Two glasses of wine (a $9 value each) This deal is only valid for select menu items.
Deft chefs fuse Japanese and Thai culinary traditions to conjure previously untasted flavors in Aquamarine’s serene atmosphere decorated with slate-gray stone, pebbles, birch wood, and a babbling waterfall. Jaws patiently gape for an appetizer of cool avocado with spicy tuna and wasabi chips, and lips hum a brief fanfare before consuming Alaska salmon carpaccio. Exotic main courses test taste buds with unique ingredients, such as sweet fruit sautéed with the tropical mango chicken or the jumbo shrimp seasoned with red curry. Vegetarians mull over their meatless options to decide whether they would rather sup on basil-laden eggplant and tofu or gradually fork through veggie fried rice one grain at a time.
