The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $22 worth of Japanese cuisine and drinks at Ichigo, located in the space formerly occupied by Sekisui Pacific Rim in Clayton. This offer is not valid for buffet specials.
Ichigo offers a menu stacked with a slew of traditional sushi rolls, East-meets-West specialty rolls, and hearty hot fare. Entice eater organs with the Is OK! signature roll, a crispy shrimp tempura, creamy avocado, and cucumber-centered cylinder topped with fresh tuna, eel sauce, and delicate masago-tobiko drizzles ($10.95). Those tired of life's many horizontal confines, such as beds and horizons, can try the vertically validating Oh My Suki, a succulent lobster tempura, lump crab meat, cucumber, and avocado-encrusted creation with macadamia nuts and a cloud of parmigiano-reggiano béchamel sauce ($15.95). An easy-to-read menu demystifies each artful roll, making it easy to distinguish vegetarian, raw, and cooked varieties. The hot menu features appetizers such as dry-rub wings ($5), golden mussels ($6), rice bowls ($6–$10), and tempura dinners ($8–$10). The red snapper is treated to a spa-like soak in sweet soy and apple compote before it's grilled on geometry and world history and determined fit for the plate alongside sweet corn relish, strawberry-avocado salsa, and sweet potato fries ($15).
Dim lighting, deep red walls, and a spacious dining area create a modern atmosphere ideal for consuming raw sea delights and creative sweet and savory entrees. The helpful and attentive staff will answer any questions you have concerning menu items or methods for uncooking fish in your own home or office.
