The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese-fusion cuisine at BluFin Sushi in Grosse Pointe Farms. BluFin delights diners with a large array of sushi’d savories and an eclectic selection of other Asian-inspired fare. The menu offers traditionally prepared sushi and sashimi, but the crafty sushi chefs at BluFin shine with their signature rolls, including the Godfather, which is filled with tempura shrimp and seasoned mayo and arrives at the table wearing a top hat of krab and pesto ($12). Diners who eschew sushi rolls to avoid nostalgic memories of cylindrical childhood pets can also take advantage of BluFin’s non-sushi options, such as Kobe sliders ($4) and Baja fish tacos ($11).
- Serving tasty, fresh fish and a solid menu on top of that is a great start. Blufin is an interesting, fun addition to Grosse Pointe. Even if you don't like sushi, give this place a shot — even if you only order the tempura Oreos. – Joe Hakim, Patch
- They completely redid the place inside and it is such an improvement to the prior restaurant. Its hip and up to date, without being over the top or pretentious. – Heather B., Yelp
BluFin Sushi rethinks the concept of a sushi restaurant, fashioning specialty rolls with unconventional ingredients and a menu of entrees that blend aspects of American and Asian cuisine. The innovative spot's chefs serve up tender Kobe beef sliders and entrees that range from fish tacos to Japanese-style fried chicken, pounded flat and battered with panko. Hefty vegetarian rolls with names such as Monster Beast keep vegetarians from going hungry and munching on nearby Chia Pets. BluFin Sushi's kitchen also prepares sushi party platters for any occasion. An outdoor patio beckons patrons outside during warm weather, and diners can wash down bites with cocktails, beer, wine, and sake.
