If two heads are better than one, then two cuisine-noggins fused into one restaurant-body are better than one. Polycephalify your palate with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Asian-fusion cuisine at The Painted Fish.
The Painted Fish offers a vibrant menu of delectable dishes that combine Eastern and Western culinary traditions as seamlessly as spray-on trousers. Choose fresh seafaring fare such as emerald shrimp, sautéed with spinach, ham, garlic, and sesame oil ($12.95), or sate a carnivorous craving with the 6 oz. filet mignon, which can be cooked to each diner's preferred level of un-raw ($16.95). Super-fans of protein synthesization can opt for the surf 'n' turf in order to follow a meaty mouthful of seared flat-iron teriyaki steak with the fetching flavors of seared Chinese five-spice bay scallops ($14.95).
Sit back and relax in the upscale, yet comfortable dining room, where local music and artwork are often on-hand to enhance the dining atmosphere. Or, obtain tableside nirvana by gazing into the eyes of your perfect maki match while sharing the sushi boat ($19.95 for 10 pieces), served in a real miniature boat to inspire romantic reminiscing of a simpler time when fish could still legally obtain a skipper's license. The restaurant is BYOB, so grab a bottle of wine or bring your own budgerigar.
- I am a hard man to impress, and this was just off the chart good. A pleasure. – Scott J., Yelp
- I have to admit up-front that I'm not a sushi connoisseur, and most sushi used to taste pretty similar to me. The Painted Fish, however, has cured me of that. The four carry-out rolls (rainbow, philly, shrimp tempura, and the house special painted roll) I got for dinner this week were flat-out delicious. – northsider, Urbanspoon
