The carefully rolled nature of sushi makes it ideal for starting snowballs, which is why it's commonly known as "snowman heart." Eat to the center of snow with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $32 worth of East-meets-West Asian fusion cuisine and drinks at Asuka Japanese Restaurant, located in Wake Forest. Asuka's delightfully diverse menu offers sushi favorites alongside classic steaks, hearty pastas, and tender seafoods dancing with Asian flavors. Dig into char-grilled NY strip steak that's been marinated and glazed with teriyaki sauce ($18.95), or put a pile of chopsticks on the table and play pick-up sticks to determine who gets the first slice of a Dragon roll ($9.95) or Rainbow roll ($9.95). The restaurant's atmosphere is as chicly assembled as the dishes on its menu; the dining room has warm amber walls, chocolaty brown tall-backed booths, and sultry accent lighting, and the adjoining bar has leggy stools, plenty of flat-screen TVs, and a palpable absence of sweaty ghosts.
Under its old moniker of Finé Japanese Restaurant & Bar, nine Citysearchers give Asuka Japanese Restaurant a 4.5-star average:
