Once mastered, chopsticks are the most manageable eating utensils, unlike forks, which get mangled in the dishwasher, or fingers, which get lost in the mouths of teething sock puppets. Eat easily with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of authentic Japanese cuisine at Fuji Mountain.
Fuji Mountain fills bellies with a flavorful menu of authentic Japanese cuisine. A choice of udon or soba noodles gives substance to warming soup bowls such as the beef-, ginger-, and vegetable-laden yaki ($13), which can supplement an order of sushi or sashimi. Cooked entrees silence stomachs' dramatic monologues with miso-glazed ahi tuna ($19) and vegetable teriyaki ($18), both of which arrive flanked by bowls of miso soup and ginger salad. Freshly plucked fruits of the sea include scallop teriyaki ($23) and organic grilled salmon steak ($22). Fuji Mountain maintains three karaoke rooms, located on the fourth floor of the restaurant, which guests can rent for private parties or memorable Senate confirmation hearings for an additional fee.
Fuji Mountain Japanese Restaurant
Contemporary design meets tradition at Fuji Mountain Japanese Restaurant, where four floors of dining space transition between laid-back lounge areas and softly lit tables set against beautifully scripted Japanese scrolls. Under the soft glow of the main dining room’s lanterns, elegantly plated katsu cutlets bear grill marks that are conspicuously absent from neighboring sashimi and delicately rolled sushi. Traveling upwards through the eatery, the aroma of bubbling udon bowls collides with pulsing sound waves, as guests belt out top 40 hits or their home state’s anthem in a private karaoke room that seats up to 30.
