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 to Ichiban in Canton. Choose between the following options:
• For $5, you get $10 worth of Japanese cuisine and drinks for lunch.
• For $14, you get $28 worth of Japanese cuisine and drinks for dinner.
Ichiban captivates taste buds with flavorful Japanese fare rolled into artful sushi creations or grilled to order by skilled table-side hibachi chefs. The dinner menu's tasty traditional offerings include tempura udon ($12), a noodle soup served alongside shrimp tempura, and steak and chicken teriyaki ($19). Amid the hibachi chefs' swirling cutlery, witty banter, and uncanny Queen Victoria impersonations, diners can pit hearty appetites against the sumo special ($28), a mighty triumvirate of filet mignon, shrimp, and chicken. Midday visitors can sample lunch menu selections such as bento boxes ($9 each), which cubically accommodate three pieces of california rolls, three pieces of shumai, and proteins prepared in teriyaki, tempura, or negimaki style. Maki rolls ($8.95 for two) come in flavors such as the boston roll, a nori-seaweed-wrapped parcel of shrimp, lettuce, and cucumber served with miso soup or salad. Images of samurais and geishas adorn Ichiban's burgundy walls, and beads cascade over entryways. A flat-screen TV entertains loungers at the sushi bar, and laser-tag equipment keeps diners occupied in posh, private booths.
Peals of laughter rise from families around the granite tabletops at which hibachi chefs crack jokes and flip shrimp over the grill. At Ichiban Steakhouse, expert grillers don black chef suits and show off their skill at slicing and searing chicken, steak, and seafood. Flanked by dark wood walls, nearby sushi chefs slice fresh fish to wrap tightly in specialty rolls. Five tatami rooms provide semiprivate spaces for business meals, romantic outings, or discreet transformations into a werewolf.
