Dining out with friends can foster healthy relationships that might otherwise be limited to impersonal group texts or overly personal bathtime visits. Get a bite in person with a person with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi, Japanese fare, and drinks at Kazuki Sushi in Maple.
Chefs present elegantly plated sushi and sashimi dishes within the modern, charcoal-hued dining room at Kazuki Sushi. Nimble knifework includes scary-thin slices of beef sashimi ($6.95) and the five-fish sashimi combo ($19.95), with two kinds of tuna and three finely filleted goldfish crackers. Beneath the airy vaulted ceiling, nomadic palates sample sushi via an à la carte menu highlighting 25 classic sushi-roll permutations, such as salmon ($3.75–$4.95) and octopus ($4.25–$5.50). The chefs create 11 specialty sushi rolls, from the shrimp-filled sweetness of Mango Tango ($13) to the Black Dragon's ($14) unlikely match of spicy tuna and spring salad. Guests complement meals with Japanese beers such as Asashi ($7.50) or raise 4-ounce glasses of house sake ($5.50) to a long life, good health, and a starring role in a movie with talking dogs.
