The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature uncooked flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of sushi and drinks at Nippon Sushi and Grill.
At Nippon Sushi and Grill, the lunch ($10.49) and dinner buffets ($12.99; $14.99 after 7 p.m.) line bellies with an unlimited stockpile of hand-rolled sushi and traditional Japanese fare. Sushi chefs wrap maki rolls by hand around a colorful rainbow of ingredients, ranging from red chunks of fresh tuna to thin green avocados. Fires seal moisture inside fillets of grilled fish, and healthy, piping-hot entrees insulate bento boxes ($5.99) to keep other side dishes warm and cover Christmas presents hidden inside. A refreshing beverage ($1.89) whets out-of-tune whistles and complements the flavors of the buffet feast.
