Before fishermen discovered the edibility of fish, they used each catch as bait for larger species, hoping in the end to hook the biggest fish of all—friendship. Catch a new friend with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale Asian cuisine and drinks at Sake Blue in Coral Gables.
Recently profiled in the Miami Herald, Sake Blue crafts freshly made sushi rolls and classic Asian entrees with a contemporary twist. Hungry eyes can peruse upscale lunch and dinner menus stocked with sushi rolls, shareable plates, and main dishes, and adult mouths sip on more than 30 types of sake. Chilled lobster, red pepper, cucumber, and avocado join forces to create lobster sui sushi rolls ($16), and the dinnertime tuna poke crudos’ combination of yellowfin tuna and mango dazzles with more tropical flair than a hermit crab juggling coconuts ($13). Diners also delight in the sichuan beef with potato gratin ($25), and munching on the wok-charred salmon relaxes incisors more effectively than gnawing on a neighbor’s car tires ($19).
Swap stories of staring contests with whales over a drink at the 38-foot full-service bar or savor a bite to eat under the glow of Florida’s biggest moon in the outdoor seating area. Sake Blue maintains a welcoming atmosphere that’s perfect for a romantic first date or a crummy first date with a person dressed as a shark.
