According to Darwin's experiments, a fish—when placed in a fishbowl full of soy sauce—will adapt to its surroundings by developing a thick shell of sticky rice and replacing its organs with avocado, cucumber, and crunchy tempura. Partake of the pinnacle of piscine evolution with today’s Groupon for sushi and drinks at Nijo Sushi Bar & Grill downtown. Choose between the following options:

Nijo Sushi Bar & Grill fills the hot and cold plates of its lunch and dinner menus with an entire ecosystem's worth of healthy, high-quality ocean animals. Start off a meal with the goma spinach ($6), whose cooked greens are tossed and turned with gomae sesame dressing, or the yam fries, enhanced with wasabi oil, kosher salt, and wasabi aioli ($6), before slurping down a bowl of udon noodle soup ($12) served with your choice of chicken, beef, shrimp, tofu, tempura, or wild mushrooms. Office escapees, meanwhile, can take their minds off their cubicled existence with the orderly cubicles of the savory bento lunches ($12), all of which come with soup, salad, and the daily sushi roll—opt for kalbi beef, fried calamari, grilled salmon, and more. For dinner, famished guests can quiet their stomach's Godzilla roars with a variety of large plates, such as the miso-crusted chicken ($18) with wild-mushroom ragout, baby greens, and a caramelized soy reduction.
Nijo Sushi Bar & Grill combines traditional food-prep methods and modern, innovative styles to conjure forth a huge selection of sushi. Try a fisherman roll of eel, crab salad, cucumber, and avocado ($8), or entice your date's pet otter with a sea urchin nigiri ($7.50). The restaurant’s full bar will happily keep the various swallow cogs, gears, and pulleys in your throat lubricated with plenty of sakes and wines. Nijo's side-street entrance and shadowy atmosphere add a sprinkle of mischief to any dish, so treat the hard-boiled detective or femme fatale in your life to a healthier meal than a belly full of hot lead with today's Groupon.
Reservations are strongly encouraged. Not valid for happy-hour prices.
- With its side street entrance and dark decor, Nijo complements the damp Seattle weather like classic film noir. The menu is classic, fresh Japanese/American fare, but what sets it apart is the portion size. The nigiri and maki sushi are crafted well and made smaller in size, so they actually fit in your mouth,as opposed to the super-size portion many sushi restaurants favor. – Kelly Vigesaa, Citysearch
- One of the top sushi places of Seattle. – Steven K., Yelp
