Without fusion cuisine, everyone would need to eat five–eight meals each day to meet the guidelines of the FDA's new 14-level food pyramid. Efficiently take in your recommended dose of flavor diversity with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of sushi and Asian fusion tapas and drinks at Bambou Asian Tapas & Bar in Greenwich.
Bambou Asian Tapas & Bar’s menu fuses the flavors of Southeast Asian street fare into creative sushi and small plates. Crispy seven-spiced calamari takes a dip in mango salsa and a spicy cream sauce ($10), and rolls ranging from the simple spicy tuna ($7) to the white-seaweed-wrapped octopus-and-mango Monster roll ($13) give action figures a chance to practice logrolling at the table. American steakhouse classics such as sirloin with mashed potatoes ($22) and Atlantic salmon ($22) take on international accents from ingredients such as sesame, ginger, Asian barbecue sauce, and shiitake mushrooms.
Along with hot or cold house sake ($7), the drink menu brims with an array of specialty cocktails such as the Bambou martini, a mix of Grey Goose vanilla, Midori, pineapple juice, and fresh lime ($10). Candlelight casts an atmospheric glow over the dining room's sleek booths and wood tables. Modern light fixtures framed by geometric metal cages perch from above, and an outdoor patio invites guests to linger over meals with complimentary wind whispers.
Bambou Asian Tapas & Bar
Candles placed upon the bar and tables at Bambou Asian Tapas & Bar cast a flickering glow on dishes that blend the spices of Chinese and Thai cuisine with the cool flavors of Japanese sushi. Behind the bar, chefs tie ribbons of seaweed around ocean-fresh salmon or chomp on morsels of wasabi before searing soy-glazed chicken with their newfound fire-breath. Wines, sakes, dessert liquors, and cocktails complement hot and cold tapas selections, and chopsticks duel for elegantly plated sushi rolls at the dining room’s intimate booths and tables.
