Seaweed is nature's duct tape—it works as well at holding together rolls of sushi as it does at quickly fixing a mermaid's broken bikini top. Keep it together with this Groupon.

Basho Japanese Brasserie
The review in Boston.com said of Basho’s sushi: “The restaurant gives the audience what it wants. Sushi and sashimi, ever and always, take top billing. Here, they deserve it.” The signature Basho roll’s thinly sliced asparagus, mushrooms, pickles, cucumbers, lettuce, and fried snow crab peek out from a cylinder of cucumber and soy paper. The Torch Toro roll wakes up taste buds with layers of torched toro—the fatty cut of the fish—and jalapeño. Ingredients for the rolls are flown in daily from around the world.
