Fusion fare celebrates international culinary traditions, similar to the way culturally aware baseball stadiums serve hot dogs in either a bun or a Dutch wooden clog. Pay tribute to multicultural meals with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of dine-in Asian fusion fare at Ginban Asian Bistro in Mamaroneck.
Seducing diners with its softly lit and elegant chewing quarters, Ginban offers a vast menu of creatively curated Asian-fusion fare and internationally influenced sushi. Entrees accompany a choice of soup or salad and include dishes such as the crispy orange beef ($16) and the mandarin duck ($20), which—like colleagues who wear their lunch instead of storing it in the break room—arrives flanked with vegetables and topped with special sauce. Thai seafood casserole, loaded with jumbo shrimp, scallops, and lobster tail drizzled with brown-curry sauce ($24) meets with maws for a protein-heavy meal, and sushi rolls such as the spicy, crunchy yellowtail ($5.50) or the california roll ($4) delight landlocked fisherman whose favorite part of the sport is the eating.
Ginban Asian Bistro
Chef Lisan slashes a checkmark of sauce on a bistro plate. The sushi bar radiates with purple neon. Red walls stand stark against black lacquered tables, where bamboo mats tell Lisan's story—an upbringing in Tokyo and 20 years in New York dreaming of a restaurant just like Ginban Asian Bistro. An ever-evolving Omakase menu mingles Japanese, Malaysian, and Southeast Asian influences and presents everything from fresh sashimi to saucy filet mignon. After splashing soy on a slice of just-rolled sushi, patrons can retreat to the outdoor patio for a cocktail. The restaurant also caters parties of up to 200 people, or occasionally up to 201 people if the outlier can stay quiet beneath a friend's trench coat.
