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 $7, you get $15 worth of sushi, Japanese fare, and drinks for dinner for two or more at Geisha Sushi Bar.
The chefs at Geisha Sushi Bar serve traditional Japanese eats as well as fold fish into numerous fresh sushi rolls and cook or deep-fry select options. While seated at sleek wooden tables or in front of the action at the sushi bar, diners mull over simple rolls of yellowfin tuna or salmon ($4.95). Noshers can also choose a signature creation such as the Rasta roll, stuffed with mango, salmon, and avocado ($8.95), or the smoked eel OMG roll ($11.95), which stands for Oh My Gullet (feels so awesome). Elsewhere on the menu, sushi bowls ($11.95–$16.95) cradle piles of tender sushi rice topped by sliced seafood and vegetables, and bento boxes cart marinated chicken kissed by house-made teriyaki sauce ($14.95).
Geisha Sushi Bar
The blue flicker of Japanese movies playing on three televisions illuminates diners in the dimly lit Geisha Sushi Bar, giving it an intimate glow. From behind the sushi bar, chefs slice fresh fish and veggies into bite-sized morsels to wrap into rolls. They create house-special rolls with human monikers, such as the Jennifer with layers of salmon, cream cheese, and spicy mayo. Cooked rolls include smoked eel and steamed shrimp, as well as deep-fried rolls drizzled with ponzu sauce. In sushi bowls, seafood and veggies lie atop a bed of sushi rice, far tastier than memory foam, and bento boxes transport shrimp or chicken marinated in housemade teriyaki alongside tempura and salad.
