Half the fun of receiving a gift is weighing it in your hands, shaking it next to your ear to see what it might, and eating all the wrapping paper to reveal what’s underneath. Tear into the gift of fresh sushi with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of create your own sushi at Eight Piece in Vernon Hills.
Eight Piece encourages edible ingenuity with a create-your-own menu of sushi rolls that customers can decorate with a variety of toppings and specialty sauces. Everyone starts with one of eight dressed-down rolls such as spicy tuna, tuna and cucumber mixed with spicy mayo sauce, or Philadelphia, salmon, avocado, and cream cheese. Next, guests top their rolls with one mixt topping including the rock 'n' roll’s baseline of oven-baked scallop, crabmeat, and masago with cream sauce or with two individual toppings such as white tuna and avocado or jalapeno and pineapple. Finally, sushi artists drizzle rolls with one specialty sauce such as wasabi mayo or chili sauce to cap off a creation as unique as a snowflake born on Leap Day (all rolls are $8).
Eight Piece also designs signature rolls ($8) matched with miso soup ($1.50) and four kinds of salad, including the fish-flecked 4 Season salad with tuna, white tuna, salmon, avocado, greens, onions, and sweet vinaigrette ($9.50).
Eight Piece is all about serving up food fresh and fast, yet each of the restaurant’s dishes remain meticulously prepared. As chefs layer fresh fish and vegetables into their signature versions of California and Philadelphia rolls, guests watch on through glass like proud parents and point out the roll they named after a grandparent. In an interactive turn, diners are encouraged to create their own sushi rolls from a menu of base rolls, creative toppings, and sauces. From those choices, chefs can add heat to a vegetarian roll with a chili oil-infused kamikaze mixt topping or cool down a chipotle roll with an individual topping of avocado and a sauce. With sushi plates in hand, diners are invited to nestle into the airy dining room where neon lime chairs and white banquettes invite conversation and leisurely dining.
