Like a great artist, a sushi chef must have incredible manual dexterity, an understanding of the use of color, and the self-control to refrain from gluing macaroni to their work. Enjoy an elegant opus with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sushi and Japanese fare at Blue Ocean Sushi.
Blue Ocean Sushi's culinarians unleash scintillating schools of sushi, which form opulent sprays alongside the traditional Japanese dishes of the lunch and dinner menus. Handcrafted sea scrolls include the AK 47 roll, a steadfast coalition of tuna, cucumber, and cream cheese decorated with medals of sweet potato and sriracha sauce ($10). The unagi don leads a parade of entrees and carries barbecue-glazed eel on a monogrammed litter of steamed white rice ($9 for lunch, $12 for dinner).
Cast crystalline coolness across palates with a bottle of Blossom of Peace, a semi-sweet plum sake tinted with almond and marzipan scents ($14). A three-sake-tasting flight ($12–$15) brims with bold, dulcet, and citric tones that regale the senses as spectacularly as an Oompa Loompa prom.
