Seafood has gained popularity as one of the most flavorful options for healthy dining, which can lead to uncomfortable stares as humans and whales reach for the last shrimp at the same time. Stay out of Moby Dick's way with today’s seaweed-wrapped Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of Japanese fare and drinks at Jade Restaurant & Lounge, a downtown eatery specializing in sushi and stir-fry, a strategy that brilliantly encompasses all points on the raw-to-stir-fried cooking spectrum.
After settling into Jade's 6,000-square-foot space, start with one of its signature cocktails and a refreshing seaweed salad ($4). Stick with a tried-and-true roll like a California ($6.50), eel ($7), or tuna ($6), or if you got an A+ on eBay today, splurge on one of Jade’s specialty makimoto. More seasoned sushi samurais can receive the geisha’s kiss ($12)—a spicy tuna roll crested with seared tuna, crunchy tempura bits, and scallions, and drizzled with eel sauce—or gorge on the gargantuan big and crazy ($20), which combines soft-shell crab, shrimp tempura, crab salad, cucumber, and avocado, topped with tobiko, crunchy tempura bits, scallions, and eel sauce. For vegans and fishphobics, Jade offers a modest selection of vegetable rolls, so you can LARP Beatrix Potter without breaking character during lunch. In addition to sushi options, Jade serves entrees like stir-fried noodles ($11), fried rice ($8), and spicy Mongolian stir-fry ($12) with your choice of meats or tofu (for shrimp, add $2).
Jade's clean, light-filled atmosphere perfectly complements each magnificent morsel and crisp cocktail it dishes out, so get this Groupon for a light, clean bite, a healthful dining-out option, or just to eat dishes that you can't prepare at home due to the repeated attacks on your apartment complex by bandits on horseback.
This Groupon is valid for dine-in and dinner only. Not valid during happy hour or with other specials.
