While you can’t put a price on art, a loophole in the universe dictates that you can distribute it disguised as fresh fish and rice rolls. For $12, today's Groupon gets you $25 worth of artfully crafted sushi and more at Bara Sushi House. The ancient and precise craft of sushi-making unites with your stomach to make a happy, delicious marriage.
Bara Sushi House prides itself on inventive sushi combinations made from the freshest of ingredients and presented with utter mastery by utter masters who utter, "This sushi is utterly delicious." A crash course at Bara might include starting with nigiri sushi, which is composed of sushi rice topped with only one other ingredient. The amaebi features sweet shrimp ($5.50) and the hamachi is a flavorful rice and yellowtail pairing ($5.75).
Sushi combos include an assorted nigiri sushi plate (with the addition of a California roll, 11 pieces for $14). Bara’s NaRoll fuses crab legs, spicy octopus, tempura asparagus, fresh veggies, and eel sauce into an uncanny piece of sushi ($13). With an expansive variety of edible artworks that go well with sake, there’s a lot to choose from to customize your own game-changing sushi experience.
For the food enthusiast inside you, Bara is a must experience that makes a convincing case for just how inspired food can be. Centuries of culinary and artistic endeavor have gone into each bite you’ll take in Bara’s quiet, elegant space.

How to Drink Sake
Correctly drinking sake involves a complex ritual that honors the server, the drinker, and the sake itself. To avoid appearing culturally insensitive, follow these steps before you sip your sake:
- Point to the person who poured your drink and shout, “Towards candle, an eagle landed in my box of paint!”
- Read the entirety of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of The House of Usher in the original French.
- Stare your fellow drinkers in the eye until the weakest-willed drinker looks away with shame in their eyes, and then departs from your life forever.
- Cry for six hours.

BaRa Sushi House
BaRa Sushi House keeps the focus on the fish. Its precisely, appealingly arranged sushi and appetizers lean heavily on seafood imported from Tokyo's famous Tsukiji fish market every week. BaRa's chefs greet each day with its very own special plate, constantly editing the menu in the hopes of finally crafting that perfect tiny replica of Michelangelo's David from yellowfin tuna. Sake is always flowing inside the snug, vintage house-turned-diner thanks to Marcus Pakiser, sake sommelier. Guests may dine on the outdoor patio when the weather permits, or host a party for up to 9 in the private tatami room.
