Overwhelmed by Chinese fare's beauty and deliciousness, Marco Polo had himself blindfolded and navigated the East by shouting his name out loud. Discover seductive savories with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of Szechuan fare and sushi at Eatao Restaurant in Brooklyn.
Eatao Restaurant's chefs cleave, stir-fry, and sauce an extensive menu of authentic Szechuan lamb, beef, poultry, and seafood dishes. Traditional tea-smoked duck reads the smoky tendrils of glowing tea leaves and camphor ($14.95 for half) to predict that diners' futures may soon contain fortune cookies. Wok-tossed tangerine chicken tap-dances in tangy bursts across tongues ($8.95), and à la carte red-clam and white-tuna sushi ($2 each) recall the famous Christmas carol about Santa's love of uncooked fish. Signature rolls intermingle maritime flavors, as in the passion roll, which tops bundles of spicy crab and mango with a flag of tuna, yellowtail, and avocado ($11.95).
