Much like mastering calculus, properly preparing sushi requires great focus, can boost a person's self-worth, and is nigh impossible for people wearing mittens. Affix a pair of chopsticks to your counting and rolling tools with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sushi and more at Sabi Asian Bistro, located in Davidson.
Skilled chefs reside in Sabi's comfortable, modern interior, where they breathe life into a munificent dinner menu of savory starters, signature entrees, and fresh sushi. The Harbour Place roll unites shrimp, crab, and eel under an umbrella of avocado ($10.95 for eight pieces), and the spicy mango chicken warms patrons from their brows to their big toes with a hot tub of stir-fried chicken, mango, red pepper, onion, and zucchini ($11). Impress a date by talking to a friendly server about crafting your own sushi concoction while dribbling a basketball with your left knee.
Every Monday night the community-minded eatery hosts a Chow Down for Charity event and donates a portion of that night's sales to local foundations chosen by diners (more than $13,000 has been raised so far). Arrive early to catch some athletic action on the bar's flat-screen televisions or to converse with a strangely familiar-looking stranger in a luxurious leather armchair.
Sabi Asian Bistro
At Sabi, the scents of spiced and marinated meats blend with a mélange of tropical mangoes and spicy peppers in inventive stir-fry dishes and sushi as guests clink glasses of wine and craft beer. The restaurant’s name borrows from the Japanese phrase “wabi sabi,” or “finding beauty in the imperfect,” such as when appreciating the tarnished patina of a bronze statue or the intriguing beauty of a mole. The eatery’s eclectic menus promise feasts of red-curry chicken, Louisiana blue crab cakes, and juicy tenderloin filets, among other Pan-Asian dishes and specialty sushi rolls. As diners savor the blend of Eastern and Western cuisines, they can feel good about a meal prepared under Sabi’s roof, especially on Mondays, when the Chow Down for Charity event raises money for local and national nonprofits, such as the American Cancer Society.
