Sushi, like the Japanese flag, expresses a delicate minimalism and is often ceremonially eaten during state speeches. Enjoy a roll respectably with today’s Groupon to R23. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get $50 worth of sushi and Japanese fare during dinner.
• For $8, you get $16 worth of sushi and Japanese fare during lunch.
Act quickly, this Groupon expires three months from today.
The thrum of clicking chopsticks resounds lightly off R23’s soaring ceilings as guests dive into the eclectic menu and frolic among the Frank-Gehry-designed furnishings. Cool-handed chefs roll rice bouquets, including the rainbow roll ($18) and the summer sensation ($15), which bathes tongues in cool breakers of avocado, crab, and salmon. Shun the sea like a rebellious teenage Poseidon with grilled duck breast stuffed with scallions ($18.50), as stylish artwork looks on approvingly from the walls of the converted railroad facility. The restaurant’s lunch menu ushers in lighter fare, such as delicately marinated grilled sea bass ($13.50), to pummel midday hunger pangs.
