The carefully rolled nature of sushi makes it ideal for starting snowballs, which is why it's commonly known as "snowman heart." Eat to the center of snow with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi, hibachi-steakhouse cuisine, and drinks at Shiro of Japan in Queens. With a tasty menu hewn from authentic Japanese fare and served in screened and matted tatami rooms, Shiro of Japan offers signature sushi rolls stuffed with fresh fish, succulent Kobe beef, and traditional hibachi-grill fare. Start with an imported Japanese beer, such as Sapporo or Kirin Light. And move on to entrees that include the likes of hibachi-chicken teriyaki ($18.50), accompanied by a parade of sides, including onion soup, salad, shrimp, vegetables, hibachi noodles or bean sprouts, steamed rice, or green tea. Sea-meat cravers and ancient enemies of giant lizards will both enjoy the Godzilla Roll, stuffed with spicy tuna, Spanish mackerel, seared yellow tail, and spicy mayo, all sprinkled with green seaweed powder ($12.95).
- In either dining room, the staff at Shiro's is very attentive. Shiro's is more than worth the price for an evening out in Queens. – John Roleke, About.com
