If two heads are better than one, then two cuisine-noggins fused into one restaurant-body are better than one. Polycephalify your palate with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of delicious Asian fusion fare at Kohan, an epicurean hybrid that expands palates by merging them. Kohan offers a diverse menu of Japanese and Korean fare in a stylish, contemporary setting. Make eyes at a date in the romantic low lighting of the dining room, or flirt at the sushi bar as you nosh on fresh fish and grill specialties. Signature sushi rolls include the sunflower—a cheery combo of white tuna, eel, and sunflower seeds topped with spicy jalapeno, ($14)—and the Kohan Dynamite—King crab, avocado and spicy tuna in a soy paper blanket with sweet and spicy sauces ($15).. Meat lovers can relish hibachi grill offerings like juicy filet mignon ($23) or bulgogi bento with Korean grilled beef, rice, and three side dishes ($15), while green-geared stomachs refuel on feasts such as the vegetable and tofu delight with miso soup and rice ($15). To put the icing on the international cakewalk, gracious guests can imbibe upon the Fuji Mountain—a slice of chocolate sponge cake snow-capped by green tea ice cream and a flurry of strawberry syrup.
- This approach draws more attention to the space's crown jewels, the immaculate sushi bar and display kitchen at the back of the room. It's almost as if the proprietors are daring you to witness the preparation of your food. – Jenny Seay, Centerstage
- I stumbled upon Kohan a few years back. I was touring the new University Village neighborhood and stopped in for some lunch. Had a bento box and I was hooked. – Matthew O., Yelp
