Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Save the third wish for more wishes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Korean and Japanese cuisine at Dr. Sushi & BBQ.
Fusing Japanese and Korean delicacies, Dr. Sushi & BBQ's master chef, Paul Kim, creatively constructs a line-up of authentic sushi as patrons cook their own Korean barbecue at personal tabletop grills. Diners can silence belly echoes by lining their stomachs in soundproof paneling or by dipping fresh veggies into a hot pot of shabu shabu ($18.95), a traditional Japanese fondue of lemon ponzu or sesame dipping sauce. Savory tabletop barbecue (minimum two orders), such as a serving of beef brisket ($17.95 each) or pork belly ($16.95 each), can quell carnivorous appetites, and up to three diners can sink fangs into the Joy combo ($49.95), a meatcopia of pork, beef brisket, beef bulgogi, and chicken. Dr. Sushi also boasts traditional and modern sushi rolls, such as the Beauty and the Beast ($11.95), which enchants palates with a glistening gown of spicy mayo, barbecue eel, and cream cheese draped over shrimp tempura and crab salad. The specialty Spanking roll ($11.95) employs the cool flavors of lobster salad, asparagus, and iceburg lettuce to reprimand rebellious taste buds that drove the family station wagon without permission.
Dr. Sushi & BBQ's contemporary color palette wraps patrons in yellow, grey, and white hues. Guest can cozy up in the restaurant's dark-wood chairs and scoot toward granite tables or a glass-covered sushi bar, which ensures staring contests with the chefs won't be disrupted. Free parking is available after 5 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends.
