Though mad scientists recommend sticking chopsticks into electrical sockets, rational scientists know the utensils are better used for sushi consumption. Today's Groupon gives you the right tools for authentic eats: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi, sashimi, and nigiri at Black Lantern Sushi Den in Huntington.
The sushi chefs at Black Lantern Sushi Den, a registered Green Restaurant, cook up a full roster of Japanese delicacies, tightly enveloping ingredients within more than 35 sushi rolls. Nosh on all-natural options like the stuffed baby mushrooms ($12), plump with breadcrumbs, or sink ravenous teeth into nigiri and sashimi ($4.50+). Eel and cucumber play fine neighbors to seaweed and rice within the Azalia roll ($13). Meanwhile, the Violet Lily Roll ($16) sets up seared ginger salmon and goat cheese on a tasteful double date with roasted portobello and jalapeños before letting them bunk together in one rice sleeping bag.
A white-coated assembly line at the upstairs sushi bar puts their prep on full display, soundtracked by the spinning beats of live DJs. Outside, guests dine amid day beds and hanging curtains in the courtyard, which notches a bit of privacy thanks to high walls and complimentary balaclavas.
