What You'll Get
If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Japanese fare and drinks at Rocketfish in Potrero Hill.
Blending traditional Japanese fare with a special selection of Japanese-infused tapas, co-owner and master chef Kenichi Kawashima offers Rocketfish guests an eclectic menu. For starters, a five-piece shrimp tempura combo launches lunches with white shrimp and seven veggie varieties ($13). A hot shoku of roasted duck breast introduces a tasty congregation of sesame, eggplant, mashed potatoes, baby zucchini, currant grapes, and rosemary balsamic to bashful taste buds ($13), and sundry sushi options—such as sea urchin nigiri ($6.50) and boiled octopus sashimi ($12)—bring joy to your tongue's heart. A seasonal ice cream or fruit option tops off your stomach with a layer of sweetness.
Although Rocketfish's upscale atmosphere is kid-friendly, grown-up patrons can discuss poems, famous fires, and famous fires caused by burning poems with their peers at the fully stocked bar, which serves wine, cocktails, sake, shouchu, and more.
