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 $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and Japanese fusion fare at Gari Japanese Fusion Restaurant in Brookline.
Patrons at Gari Japanese Fusion Restaurant snag sleek metallic seats in a modern space that “looks, sounds, and smells like a trendy sushi bar on a precious piece of Tokyo real estate,” according to the Boston Globe. Beneath the undulating canopy of a black-and-white sushi bar, chefs slice and chop a menu of fresh sushi and sashimi and contemporary fusion fare. Chopsticks can pluck segments of striped bass ($4.50 for two pieces) and yellowtail ($5.95 for two pieces) sushi à la carte, or order spicy scallop maki ($7.25) and the chef's specialty Gari Bruschetta Twist ($16) by the roll to silence grumbling stomachs and hungry teacup hyenas. Cooked Japanese dishes such as salmon teriyaki ($19.95) and beef steak teriyaki ($19.95) tickle taste buds with sweet and tangy sauce, and Carribean-phyllo-crusted prawns ($9) and other fusion fare round out meals with piquant spices and insightful commentary on international affairs.
