Seaweed is nature’s duct tape—it works as well at holding together rolls of sushi as it does at quickly fixing a mermaid’s broken bikini top. Keep it together with this Groupon.
$25 for $40 Worth of Japanese Food and Sushi for Dinner
The menu includes crispy chicken and vegetable gyoza dumplings, stir-fried yakisoba noodles with chicken, fresh-cut salmon sashimi, and sushi.
Glowing wall sconces bring out the light mint hue of the dining room’s walls––a nod to the restaurant’s name, Midori, which means green in Japanese. While skilled chefs wrap spicy tuna and tobiko in fresh seaweed and rice, decorative boat platters of salmon and yellowtail sashimi sail across the sprawling sushi bar to waiting patrons. Though the Japanese restaurant specializes in seafood and handcrafted rolls, it’s only a part of the kitchen’s wheelhouse, which produces stir-fried yakisoba noodles and chicken drenched in rich teriyaki. Diners may also honor Midori’s name with a few scoops of green-tea ice cream, which gives an extra kick to the evening more easily than a third leg.
