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 at Kone in Miami Beach. Choose from the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and sake.
- For $29, you get $60 worth of sushi and sake.<p>
Within a modern, upscale environment, Kone whips up a multiplicity of inventive Japanese-Brazilian fusion dishes. The grippable design of Kone’s savory hand rolls ($5+) makes them easy to eat without cumbersome chopsticks or finger-sized suction cups. For patrons who prefer seafood by the piece, Kone also offers traditional sushi rolls ($6.50+), specialty house rolls, knives for cutting, and fresh, mouth-melting sashimi ($5+). 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+).
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.
