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 $25, you get $50 worth of Japanese cuisine at Geisha House.
Geisha House, a modern Japanese restaurant and sushi bar, fuses classic dishes and sushi rolls with a contemporary flair in a chic interpretation of a traditional geisha house. The Cowboy roll ($12) lassos fillet of beef, asparagus, scallion and cream cheese, and the surf 'n' turf roll ($22) combines lobster and filet mignon in a sweet sesame-miso sauce. The chef prepares grilled mongolian lamb chop with creamy sesame and cucumber salad ($21), and gently lulls baby japanese eggplant ($11) to sleep with sweet miso and wasabi cream sauce and a hypnotic battle rap. The 10-ounce grilled Kobe rib eye steak ($46) plunges into Asian barbecue dipping sauce and comes flanked by sautéed asparagus life preservers.
Diners eat atop round crimson tables hosting black-and-white place settings and chairs. Wine bottles nestle into an all-glass wine cell, accompanied by a silk-robed geisha mannequin posing for guests. Liquor bottles rest in cutout squares of the red-light bar, and plush couches invite guests to mingle, sip drinks, and write their own memoirs.
