Wrapping a bit of fish in seaweed and rice has long been an acceptable method of preparing dinner, but it’s also a healthy, sustainable way to wrap birthday presents. Throw taste buds a surprise party with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Asian fusion fare and sushi at OPM in Brooklyn.
OPM's Chef Chris Cheung dazzles blasé appetites with eye-popping Asian fusion dishes and fresh sushi presented within romantic confines. The eatery shells out sea-worthy eats such as the sweet-potato tempura roll ($6), the lobster-mango roll ($13), and the angel-fish specialty roll, artfully layered with white tuna, mango, and black tobiko ($16). The popular Kobe-beef sliders ($19) can make a stunning entrance on the arm of tangy wasabi mashed potatoes ($7). Patrons looking to eradicate hunger from their palate's landscape can summon the protection of Samurai crab cakes, accompanied by ninja-star-throwing wasabi and nunchuck-wielding avocado salad ($25).
This romantic enclave is enclosed in sultry cherry-red walls, bathed in light from an overhead chandelier and candles, and houses a bar embossed in shimmering gold. With a modern Victorian design by Lewis & Dizon, who also designed Marquee, Home, and Butter, this hot spot features rooftop summer dining and an 19th-century time machine that only visits the 21st century.
