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. Eat something of substance with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of hibachi fare and sushi at Geisha Steak and Sushi Restaurant in Plano.
The chefs at Geisha Steak and Sushi Restaurant combine the sophisticated flavors of fine dining with the theatricality of tableside preparation while conjuring a creative menu of Japanese specialties. Like a knock-knock joke from the maitre d', edamame—steamed soybeans sprinkled with sea salt ($3.95)—can start meals off on a light note. Hibachi entrees pair proteins such as swordfish ($18.95) with steamed rice, assorted veggies, and soup and salad. The fuji-san specialty roll ($14.50) curls snow crab and shrimp tempura under a tiara of crab mix, tempura flakes, and spicy mayo; the traditional caterpillar roll ($9.95) snuggles baked unagi with avocado and a distinctive eel sauce. Fried strawberry cheesecake ($6.95) and mochi ice cream ($4.95) leave stomachs pleasantly subdued and receptive to patting.

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.
