What You'll Get
Though mad scientists recommend sticking chopsticks into electrical sockets, rational scientists know the utensils are better used for sushi consumption. Today's Groupon gives you the right tools for authentic eats: for $12, you get $25 worth of sushi and Asian fare at Matsuya Sushi & Grill in Jacksonville Beach.
Matsuya Sushi & Grill elevates the art of Asian cuisine to dizzying heights with its army of trained chefs and wait staff. The restaurant’s sushi menu is a declaration of delicious independence from boring dining options. Eel, squid, and salmon rolls ($2 and less each) present these succulent sea critters astride rice, ready to fly into the waiting mouths of diners. Matsuya’s sushi experts get crafty with a simple list of ingredients for maximum taste-bud fireworks with the chef’s special rolls, such as the lobster tempura roll ($14.95). The restaurant also dishes out Asian cuisine not made dizzy by skillful rolling via an equally exquisite dinner menu, whose star pupil is the restaurant’s hibachi-fired chicken ($12.95), salmon ($14.95), filet mignon ($19.95), and dreams of opera stardom.
Matsuya evokes a feeling of the Far East with simple décor and gentle lighting. Each dish is prepared to match the care of the food, featuring artistic presentations of accompanying sauces, garnishes, and 500-watt spotlights. Every Friday, the restaurant kicks up the weekend whoopees with live entertainment from Stu Weaver.

About Matsuya Sushi & Grill
Behind Matsuya Sushi & Grill's sparkling L-shaped sushi counter, succulent fillets of tuna, salmon, and white fish succumb to chefs' keen knives before joining rice in bite-sized nigiri or tempting rolls. Collective gasps of admiration—usually reserved for the unveiling of a child’s macaroni self-portrait—leap from the lips of patrons as a chef taps and tosses shrimp, chicken, filet mignon, and lobster on the hibachi grill. Dressed in traditional Japanese robes and hats, waiters ferry plates decorated with carrot roses and artful splashes of sauce across the dining room, where screens and blond woods cultivate a peaceful atmosphere. Chefs reveal their sushi secrets every Sunday, bestowing their knowledge upon students during four-hour all-you-can-eat sushi-making classes.
