Though meals tend to bring friends together, meals peppered with magnets can push them apart. Enjoy an attractive repast with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese fare at Makiman Sushi, plus one complimentary order of edamame (a $4.50 value).
Makiman Sushi populates a menu with fresh sushi as well as teriyaki, udon noodle, and stone-pot dishes. With today’s deal, duets begin meals with lightly salted bites of edamame. Elegant sushi rolls embrace scrumptious comestibles in rice, including a scorpion roll ($9.95) filled with eel and tobiko and topped with cooked shrimp. A NE Viking spicy tuna roll ($13.95) takes over plates with a crown of torched salmon and two colors of tobiko, accented by generous drizzles of eel and spicy sauces. Makiman Sushi finesses flames to create meaty teriyaki dishes, which top steamed veggies and tofu with grilled freshwater eel ($17.95) or shrimp and scallops ($18.95) pan-seared in butter and sake. Bi bim bop bowls ladle shredded beef ($13.95), unagi ($16.95), or other protein-packed elements atop six types of seasoned veggies, rice, and a sunny side up egg. Guests can kick back at a table or perch at a recently remodeled sushi bar to admire the sushi chefs' handiwork, avoid the eyes of their eating companion, and perfect peripheral vision.
The chefs at Makiman Sushi believe in keeping their gills and their grills separate, serving both raw-fish fusion sushi and Korean stone-pot bi bim bop. Like the Warren G. Harding White House during Prohibition, the eatery is BYOB and patrons pour their favorite beverages while delving into orders of tuna nachos, a dish of fried wontons topped with raw tuna and a spicy sauce.
