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 $10, you get $25 worth of sushi, cocktails, and more at The Drunken Fish's new location in the Power & Light District.
Chisel your chopstick muscles with the help of sushi selections such as smoked salmon nigiri ($5.50) or octopus nigiri ($4) before moving on to impress an elegantly plated maki. The signature Drunken Fish Roll is tightly wrapped with shrimp tempura, asparagus, and japanese mayo, and then crowned with tuna, sprouts, masago, tempura crumbs, and eel sauce ($14.50). Sushi newbies can get their tonguefeet wet with more familiar concoctions, such as the philly roll, which sports a tasty trio of salmon, avocado, and cream cheese ($7.50) and is available deep-fried and topped with eel sauce ($8.50). Hardily appetited robots can test their finger-stilts on plentiful dinner entrees such as salmon teriyaki, served with miso soup and house salad ($17.75), or stir-fried soba or udon noodles ($10–$15).
Maintain your belly's buzz even after taking your final bite by lathering your throat with a saucy cocktail. The Zen-tini—a heady mixture of Gekkeikan sake, vodka, lime juice, triple sec, and a splash of cranberry—offers crisp refreshment that pairs perfectly with The Drunken Fish’s clean décor ($7). Drunken Fish offers two levels, a rooftop with a bar and fire pits, and modern looks, such as a hip bar lit from overhead, and geometric-patterned earth tones, such as pebble, rust, and chocolate.
