Eating sushi for the first time requires a certain amount of bravery, trust, and a vow to only use the super strength it gives you for good or morally neutral deeds. Try some sushi with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi and Asian cuisine at Jaiyen. Jaiyen's menu is a massive dance party of super fresh, generously portioned dishes that range from sashimi starters, chef's-special rolls, and sushi and sashimi dinners to soup, tempura, noodles, and fried rice. Fuse your foraging stomach with the pad thai Jaiyen ($7.75) to complement the Jai Yen maki ($9.95), a creative chef's-special roll of scallop, shrimp, crab, and avocado rapped with cucumber beats and topped with house-music special sauce.

Jaiyen Restaurant, a Zagat-rated eatery, serves edibles from all across Asia, with a menu more internationally inspired than a model U.N. team playing catch with a globe. Servers sling familiar Japanese bites such as spicy miso soup, beef teriyaki, and seaweed salad, as well as vegetarian maki rolls, pad thai, and spicy udon noodles. Fried rice and curries sate cravings for carbs or cumin, and desserts such as green-tea ice cream cleanse palates.
