Once mastered, chopsticks are the most manageable eating utensils, unlike forks, which get mangled in the dishwasher, or fingers, which get lost in the mouths of teething sock puppets. Eat easily with today’s Groupon to Tiger Sushi 2. Choose between the following options:

The experienced sushi chefs at Tiger Sushi 2 employ nimble knife skills and top-notch seafood as they craft nigiri, sashimi, and maki rolls for the eatery’s lunch and dinner menus. Foodsmiths pack the interior of the crunchy New York roll ($16.99) with tuna and garlic-chili mayo before plastering the roll’s rice exterior with playbills of sliced avocado and tuna. Inside the Philly roll ($8.50), smoked salmon and cream cheese forge a cool, smoldering flavor profile that contrasts with the explosive taste of the Dynamighty spicy yellowtail roll ($7.99). Midday eaters can enjoy a variety of lunch specials, from the Sashimi “7” ($12), which includes seven cuts of fish selected by the chef, to thai-basil-tossed noodles ($10–$12) served with a choice of proteins and a side of miso soup. A wide variety of sakes, beers, and signature cocktails ($5+) populate the drink menu, and lubricate customers’ lips as they bite into entrees or make fish faces at wads of wasabi. On Sundays, kids younger than 8 eat free (one per paying adult), though imaginary friends must pay listed prices.
Clad in his kitchen whites and armed with razor-sharp cutlery, the chef slices a slab of bright-red tuna into thick, even pieces with a nonchalant flick of his wrist. Curious customers have stopped at the sushi bar to marvel at his precision, but he does not look up from his task until each slice has been nestled atop a bed of perfectly formed rice. He begins the cycle of chopping and arranging again, continuing until all diners' appetites have been sated. So passes a typical day at Tiger Sushi 2, where chefs and servers stock tables with platefuls of fresh, innovative Japanese and Asian fusion food. Away from the dining room, chefs manning the kitchen oversee the assembly of dishes inspired by recipes from around the globe, from thai noodle dishes and asian fish tacos to japanese gyoza dumplings. The culinary team crafts each meal from ingredients such as cooked surf clam, super white tuna, and new york strip steak, enlivening dishes with fresh additions such as lime-juice glaze, mint leaves, and minced ginger. An outdoor patio grants guests a chance to engage in alfresco dining, and its dog-friendly policy gives hounds and humans trapped in their pets’ bodies the opportunity to go out on the town.
