What You'll Get
Though mad scientists recommend sticking chopsticks into electric sockets, rational scientists know the utensils are better used for electrifying sushi consumption. Today's Groupon gives you the right tools for authentic eats: for $20, you get $45 worth of sushi and Japanese cuisine at Pisces Sushi Bar & Lounge on East Metropolitan Avenue.
Pisces Sushi Bar & Lounge delights guests with a diverse menu of upscale sushi and Japanese cuisine in an elegant modern setting. Start with traditional vegetarian spring rolls ($3) or a grilled skewer of bacon-scallop yakitori ($2.50). Unlike snake trousers, the fresh nigiri and sashimi are offered in pairs; mix and match freshwater eel ($4), yellowtail ($4.50), or sea urchin ($7). The multifarious maki selection spans from favorites such as the spicy tuna roll ($6) or California roll ($5.50) to house specialties such as the Pisces roll, which comes stuffed with avocado and white-fish tempura topped with seared salmon, aroi, and eel sauce ($12.50). Meanwhile, heat-seeking tongues can hone in on the grilled black cod with miso sauce ($12), the torched flounder carpaccio with ponzu infusion sauce ($14), or the hibachi-grilled filet mignon ($21.50).
Feel free to relax at one of Pisces' finely kept tables to enjoy a visual feast of the abstract art hanging around the dining room, or sit at the sleek, glass-topped, stone-decorated bar to watch as your sushi is uncooked to perfection .
