Sushi, like the archival footage of Mark McGwire's birth, is best known for its raw quality. Get attached to your food with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese cuisine at Bayridge Sushi in Brooklyn.
The clever chefs at Bayridge Sushi artfully plate the culinary creations arrayed on a menu of fresh sushi, tempura, maki combinations, and other East Asian dishes. Start your mouth's engine with an appetizer of maki chicken ($5.95) before speeding off toward a horizon rife with colorful sushi rolls. Specialty rolls such as the sashimi cucumber roll ($8.95) and the spicy crab dragon roll ($10.95) come swaddled in a bathrobe of white or brown rice, and the sweet potato tempura roll ($3.95) and yellowtail jalapeno roll ($4.95) boast colors as vivid as a Rorschach blot drawn by a kindergartener. A moat of miso soup and a lettuce line formation of salad fortifies tummies from being invaded by hunger anytime soon.
An ocean of choices awaits diners at Bayridge Sushi. Lunchboxes composed of teriyaki or tempura meats provide an alternative to standard paper bags filled with jelly, and sushi and sashimi platters round out meals with soup and salad. Noon or night, dozens of rolls cover plates in neat slices of fresh salmon or avocado and cucumber. More adventurous diners can seek out specialty rolls, including the house tempura roll with lightly fried salmon, eel, and seaweed and the Phoenix roll filled with shrimp and banana.
