Like the earth, sushi consists of layers and was apparently invented by someone who really liked the ocean. Explore waves of flavor with this Groupon.
$30 for a Two-Hour BYOB Sushi-Making Class ($60 Value)
Experienced sushi chef Joe Takeda, a native to Osaka, Japan, teaches authentic Japanese culinary art in BYOB sushi-making classes. Students learn to stack pieces of salmon nigiri and roll california and spicy-tuna hand rolls. As pupils manipulate rice, fish, and nori, chef Joe spouts off facts on the history of sushi. The group then chow downs on their fresh creations, washed down by their own beer or wine—with glassware provided at the restaurant. To continue the festivities, students can stay after class for a karaoke party. Classes meet 2:30 p.m.–4:30 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday.

Mt. Fuji Sushi Bar and Japanese Cuisine
With more than two decades of Japanese culinary experience as his guide, chef Joe Takeda crafts and serves creative sushi rolls with artful authority. City Weekly writer Ted Scheffler relished in the chef's expertise when he dined omakase-style at Mt. Fuji Sushi Bar and Japanese Cuisine, letting Joe surprise him with a parade of custom rolls and a sampling of the teriyaki, tempura sauce, and spicy mayo, all of which are made from scratch. As he dined, Scheffler unearthed stories from the chef's lengthy career, starting at his birthplace in Osaka, Japan, and moving on to the cauldrons of sushi rice he made, weighty boxes of fish he hauled, and wasabi-breathing dragons he conquered on his journey to rolling and slicing his own sushi.
A long chrome counter in front of Mt. Fuji's sushi bar seats patrons for an up-close view of the chef's expert skills as he rolls Gokudo rolls with ginger and mackerel and Nemo rolls stuffed with salmon topped in unagi and mango. The kitchen also serves Japanese cuisine from shoyu ramen with sliced pork to chicken teriyaki to wasabi steak. Chef Joe transfers his master skills to novice sushi rollers in BYOB sushi-making classes every weekend, during which they can eat their freshly wrapped creations and belt out love songs dedicated to the most beautiful salmon at karaoke parties.
