For $20, today's side deal gets you $40 worth of fresh Asian-inspired fare and drinks at Aria Bar. The ultra-chic sushi club is dressed to the nines in deeply saturated earth tones, sari-inlaid tables, and gold and amber shears, sweeping senses off their five feet for Eastbound epicurean adventures. This Groupon can only be used on Aria's bar side, not for full restaurant service.
Refreshing summer cocktails, a long list of local and global brews, and sake by the glass and bottle lay the foundation for Asian-infused feasts. Couple a glass of lychee love (Bombay Sapphire gin, lime, lychee liquor, and St. Germain elderflower liqueur) with a fresh green-papaya salad ($6), or share a plate of bigeye tuna salad with mizuna, mango, avocado, and pistachio-lime vinaigrette ($16). Hearty helpings from the kitchen include wagyu beef carpaccio with smoked char roe and Michigan scallion pancakes ($16). Or happify hungry herbivores with the organic buckwheat soba noodles tossed with Asian eggplant, tofu, cucumbers, and ginger-scallion vinaigrette ($12). Flying fresh and fast from the sushi bar are poppable pieces ranging from classic rolls like spicy tuna ($8) and unagi ($9) to specialty makimono such as mango monsoon (smoked madai, spicy tuna, salmon, mango, lychee, and yuzu foam; $13).

- The chefs recently updated their sushi bar menu, which offer a delicious, unique selection. I LOVE the lobster tempura roll with spicy tuna on top! It is a must have. – VIP OpenTable.com user who dined on 06/13/2010
