Sake comes from fermenting rice, just as seltzer comes from carbonating water and syrup comes from making trees cry. Revel in rice’s tears with today’s Groupon to Asian Station Choose between the following options.
- For $19, you get a TY KU sake tasting for two and an edamame appetizer (a $42 value).
- For $36, you get a TY KU sake tasting for four and two edamame appetizers (an $84 value)<p>
Along with its sumptuous fusion cuisine, Asian Station indulges diners with sips of high quality TY KU sake. Dining duos and quartets can kick off prandial tête-à-têtes and synchronize chewing rhythms with appetizers of edamame. Once dining magicians have made starters disappear, they can summon forth flights of sake for each guest to sip or scratch ‘n’ sniff. A flight comes in the form of three 1.5 oz pours of TY KU Silver (Junmai), Black (Junmai-Ginjo), and White (Junmai-Daiginjo) sakes. Brewed with specialty polished rice, the sakes are gluten-free and void of the sulfites and tannins that—along with the mispronunciation of French words—give wine enthusiasts headaches.
Asian Station 82nd
Asian Station 82nd indulges diners with a sumptuous fusion menu that blends classic Japanese fare with modern and traditional Thai dishes. Chefs flaunt their creativity with specialty rolls that artfully envelop fresh seafood such as king crab, spicy scallops, or tuna, and they assemble entrees including tangerine beef and mango chicken that showcase light Asian flavors.
Though the restaurant flaunts an elegant, modern interior design, a sound system playing Top 40 tunes, a mounted flat-screen television, and a vast selection of sake all help forge a more relaxed atmosphere. Diners can eat in the main room or in an auxiliary dining room, where cushioned benches support guests looking up at the illuminated cerulean dome or walls adorned with oversize red and black squares left over from the painting crew's checkers tourneys.
