Like romance novelists, sushi chefs roll raw tidbits into small, tempting packages. Passionately devour cuisine with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a sushi and sashimi lunch or dinner for two, including cocktails, at Fusha West (up to an $84 value).
The ingredient-rollers at Fusha West infuse traditional Asian edibles with contemporary flourishes. Sample the diverse, inventive menu with a prix fixe dinner for two ($62), featuring 13 pieces of sashimi and eight pieces of sushi, hand-selected and prepared by the talented chefs (recommendations are welcome). Taste buds can warm up by wrapping around a spicy tuna roll, while chopsticks can recall their past lives as fishing poles by hunting for crab and avocado within a california roll. A signature lady lobster roll of lobster tail tempura, cucumber, and red and wasabi caviar completes the meal, dressing palates in an outfit far more refined than an evening gown made of corn syrup. Diners can each choose an accompanying cocktail (up to an $11 value each) to help steel against the night’s inevitable misty-eyed parting of ways.
The warmly lit atmosphere at Fusha West smelts Asian-inspired décor and modern, industrial twists such as exposed-brick walls, spot lighting, glossy tables, and high-backed chairs. While teeth tap dance across the surfaces of sushi rolls, ears can beat their drums to the rhythm of soothing, eclectic music.
