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.
- Helmed by a former Blowfish sushi master n’ sake-mmelier, RF's self-proclaimed Japanese tapistro (tapas + bistro = sure, why not...) that marries tempura and sushi goodness with an inventive cocktail-slingin' full bar that goes well beyond the typical sake and beer options – Thrillist
