Since humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fill this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon. For $25, you get $50 worth of mouthwatering sushi at SUteiShi. Modern and swanky, the voyeuristic Seaport venue sides its famed fresh fare with glistening Brooklyn Bridge views.
Pop edamame into a date's mouth ($4), or dash him or her with a warm cup of miso soup ($4) while perusing the menu. Fresh salads, including the ginger-drizzled mixed greens ($7) and seaweed tossed with a tangy pineapple dressing ($9), are healthful ways to get started. Diners will find all the sushi-menu staples from cucumber rolls ($3) to dragon maki ($12), along with a bevy of specialty selections and homemade accoutrements, such as homemade teriyaki sauce and home-brewed low-sodium soy sauce. Experiment with the Jade ($10), a fruity mouthful of crunchy banana, campyo, and avocado, or try the hearty Triple Blossom with tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and gobo in a soybean wrap ($20). Entrees, such as the marinated chicken breast drizzled in ginger teriyaki ($18), come with a bowl of white rice. Fried ice cream ($6) or crispy fried bananas in caramel sauce ($7) make a satisfying conclusion to the meal.
SUteiShi's drink menu includes a well-curated selection of Asian beers (including the authentic Japanese Orion), hot and cold sake (try the specialty peach saketini), and wines. Nosh on small plates such as hot and crispy shrimp and sautéed veggies while soaking up panoramic views, or post up at the modern sushi bar. SUteiShi's extended weekend hours and friendly, hospitable staff make it a light, sophisticated stop for a post happy-hour snack or a scenic date. Call ahead to make your reservation.
- ...a bright alternative to the neighborhood's usual dim-lit after-work sports dives and frozen-in-the-'90s wine bars attracting Wall Streeters. The crowd in this spot, styled with spartan latticework of glass and steel, is a far cry from suits as well; it’s a wide cross-section of New Yorkers who flock for the dramatic cobblestone view of the Brooklyn Bridge nearby. The sushi's fine, if not exotic, with luscious standards like fatty-tuna rolls, and specialties obviously geared toward the American palate... a pleasing contrast of textures and tastes here. – Michael Y. Park, New York
- ...we found Suteishi an oasis of color and quiet, a block or so north of the tourist throng. The place specializes in sushi, but with several jazzy side-specialties such as screaming hot rocks––the usual steak or mushrooms seared sizzling on a flat stone. – Village Voice
- ...the orange and red dragon rolls...are good. Damned good. – Rob Tallia, Not For Tourists
- The beautiful atmosphere is coupled with an exquisite menu of superbly executed dishes. – RaphaelA9824, Zagat
