Because humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of hibachi-style fare, fresh sushi, and drinks at Miyako Sushi Bar & Hibachi, located on St. Charles Avenue. Diners who redeem this deal Sunday through Thursday can also score a free appetizer from a preselected list of four popular choices.
Harnessing seasonal, fresh ingredients, Miyako's skilled hibachi chefs delight patrons with the ancient art of tableside preparation. Watch the flash of knives as your chef performs fancy handwork such as tossing a grain of rice in the air and splitting it with a razor-sharp noodle. Miyako offers an extensive hibachi menu of teppanyaki-style dishes designed to delight all five senses, including color. Starters include the beef negimaki, which combines thin beef slices with scallions in a teriyaki sauce ($5.95), and the kani salad, featuring shredded crabmeat, cucumber, and smelt roe ($5.95). A full-course dinner is available in specials such as the sumo: a parade of starters including an appetizer, soup, salad, noodles, and rice followed by a sizzling 14-ounce filet steak and topped off with silky ice cream ($33.95).
For those who enjoy their seafood unflamed, a full sushi bar features fresh maki and sashimi, as well as specials including the double spicy roll, a mix of spicy salmon and tempura flakes topped with spicy tuna ($10.95). Miyako also rouses tired tongues with a full-service bar, where Japanese wine and beer live in peaceful harmony with specialty cocktails such as the sake martini ($5.95). Teppanyaki-style dining encourages a lively atmosphere by making friends out of strangers and amicable hibachi grills, and because Miyako's spacious interior accommodates parties of up to 70 people, your chopsticks can make friends with your new friends' newly friended entrees.
