If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi, sake, and more at Kone in Miami Beach. Within a modern, upscale environment, Kone whips up a multiplicity of inventive, Japanese-Brazilian fusion dishes. Self-conscious connoisseurs can feast on Sushi Kones, savory hand rolls that are designed to be easily eaten without cumbersome chopsticks or implanted finger sequins ($5 and up). For patrons who prefer seafood by the piece, Kone also offers traditional sushi rolls ($6.50 and up), specialty house rolls, knives for cutting, and fresh, mouthmelting sashimi ($5 and up). Round out meals with shrimp and vegetable tempura ($6.50), seaweed salad ($3.75), and fried baby octopus ($5), or treat sweet teeth to filled dessert waffle cones ($5 and up).

Kone Sushi specializes in sushi hand rolls known in Japan as temaki—te, which means hand, and maki, which means roll. These tiny wonders rely on a strong Brazilian influence, and contrary to traditional sushi principles and intense protesting from old-school fishermen, they are crafted in a cone shape. Though Kone Sushi has more than 60 temaki recipes in salmon and tuna, patrons can modify rolls or create their own to specifications for pairing with a wide array of appetizers, salads, sashimi, and traditional-style house rolls.
Located in South Beach less than 1,000 feet from the Atlantic Ocean, Kone Sushi's modern dining room harbors a black-and-white color scheme, with glints of red in chairs and wall segments. In a separate lounge area, diners can also sip on Sakerinha, the sake version of Brazil's most popular liquor drink, or dish on a brazilian waffle treat called brigadeiro, made per tradition with chocolate and fresh fruit.
