Live Sushi Bar and Live Sushi Bistro - Multiple Locations: $20 for $40 Worth of Japanese Cuisine and Drinks at Live Sushi Bar or Live Sushi Bistro

The pernicious influences of fire are far-reaching, from interrupting Prometheus's holiday plans to clearing garages of their prized newspaper stacks and gasoline-can collections. Eschew singed foodstuffs with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese cuisine and drinks at Live Sushi Bar, on 17th Street, or Live Sushi Bistro, on Gilbert Street.

Live Sushi Bar and Bistro alike fill hungry tummies with an expansive selection of delectable Japanese fare in two hip and convenient locations. Diners can sharpen appetites to razor keenness with Live Sushi Bistro and Bar menu starters such as the tiger prawns teppanyaki, four seared prawns accompanied with Japanese cocktail sauce ($11.95), or the gomae, steamed spinach with crushed sesame crust, perfect for sprouting cartoon-sized muscles before an imminent street brawl ($4.95).

With mouths properly primed for main courses, sushi lovers can sink their teeth into a dizzying selection of rolls including the DJ roll, which expertly mixes avocado, cucumber, and shrimp-tempura taste notes with walu, jalapeño, and cream sauce ($13.95). The Romeo & Juliet roll unites star-crossed avocado and shrimp tempura in a riveting saga of the doomed existence between soliloquizing crustacean and fruit ($13.95). Piscine connoisseurs looking for a wide variety of fishy flavors can avail themselves with the extensive nigiri menu, popping bite-size portions of oceanic edibles, such as horse mackerel ($5.95), tuna ($5.95), and scallop ($4.95).

Grease mouths and conversation with a selection of Live Sushi's imported beverages. Kirin, Asahi, and Sapporo beers ($3.95 for a small bottle, $6.50 for a large) provide culturally appropriate escorts to ferry food down gustatory thoroughfares, while sake flights ($10.50–$12) appease rice-wine aficionados and curious tipplers with a range of styles and tastes.

  • Excellent sushi and very pleasant service. A casual place with topnotch food. Great sake list, and samplers that let you try several and learn a bit about sake. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 1/7/2011
  • The sushi here is one of the best around! The prices are typical good sushi prices. The quality of the sushi and sashimi is always fresh and they taste really good. – rachel_sf, Citysearch
