Dinosaurs used to eat rocks to help them break up the harsh meals they ingested—a fact unequivocally proven when scientists found fossilized bones with rocks near them. Today's deal is easier on the stomach: $20 for $40 worth of sips and savories at Geisha Steak and Sushi Restaurant. Though you can't use your Groupon toward alcohol, you can put it toward Geisha's hot teas or soft drinks.
Japanese cuisine combines fine dining with the arts, a pairing previously lost on thespians and painters who search for happiness at the bottom of a Hot Pocket. You may savor the quiet elegance of a maki roll neatly painting your plate or cheer for the ebullient hibachi chef who prepares your meal tableside in a controlled flash of flame. The age-dashi tofu with tempura sauce ($5.95) starts the meal off on a light note. Move on to seaweed salad crested with sesame seeds ($3.95) or a cup of hibachi soup ($2.50), a classic mushroomy broth. Geisha Steak and Sushi's hibachi appetizers and entrees are prepared tableside with theatrical flair. You can pick your protein (tofu, chicken, swordfish, steak, scallops, and more) and enjoy steamed rice, assorted veggies, and soup and salad.
If you're practicing your chopstick skills, Geisha's decadent specialty rolls are a delicious way to ease into the art of eating with finger-stilts. Try the Plano Morning ($10.95), a bagel-worthy combination of salmon, avocado, and cream cheese, or the Geisha Cracker ($14.95) with white tuna, kami kama, spicy mayo, and crispy rice. The dining destination is open Sunday through Friday for lunch and dinner, and for dinner only on Saturdays, when lunch is traditionally outlawed.
Geisha Steak and Sushi Restaurant
At Geisha Steak and Sushi Restaurant, fine dining mingles with culinary arts in a creative menu of Japanese specialties cooked over open flames or rolled fresh on the sushi bar. While juggling the entire food pyramid over the hibachi grill, chefs combine meats such as chicken and calamari, filet mignon and shrimp, and steak and lobster with steamed rice and assorted veggies. Meats sizzle as mounds of noodles brown atop the grill and mix with tangy sauces that land somewhere between salty and sweet, like a grizzled sailor’s love letters. The chefs condition taste buds to swoon over cylindrical foods by creating specialty rolls such as the flash-fried White Dragon roll with tuna, salmon, and avocado, or the Fuji-san, composed of shrimp tempura, snow crabs and spicy mayo. Their desserts—such as banana tempura, fried strawberry cheesecake, and mochi ice cream made from rice—deliciously round out meals, leaving otherwise noisy stomachs pleasantly subdued and receptive to patting.
