Though mad scientists recommend sticking chopsticks into electric sockets, rational scientists know the utensils are better used for sushi consumption. Today's Groupon gives you the right tools for authentic eats: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese cuisine at Shonos in City on Market Square. Shonos in City serves up lunch, dinner, and satiating sushi in its cozily contemporary confines and boasts a variety of unique dishes and flavorings. Midday munchers can feast on the plum chicken entrée ($7.29), featuring hibachi style chicken teeming with veggies and highlighted in a spice-filled plum sauce, while Wednesday through Sunday dinner diners can sign up for Willy's special entrée ($10.99), a bevy of garden residents like cabbage and zucchini rallying around charismatic strips of chicken and beef at a town hall meeting of tastiness; sushi enthusiasts will delight in menu options like the crazy rock and roll ($12), an eccentrically electric barbershop quartet of eel, shrimp, salmon, and crab on a raucous tour bus of cucumber and avocado.
The blog the Sunsphere is Not a Wigshop reviewed Shono's in the City. Seventy-two percent of more than eighty Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant. Though patrons are polarized about the sushi, five Yelpers give Shono's in the City an average rating of three stars.
- The "Kamikaze" is flash-fried tuna, cucumber, spicy sauce, topped w/ crushed red peppers. Spicy is good, especially when accompanied by a cold beer. – pol, Sunsphere is Not a Wigshop
- another thing i love about them is that I go to UT and have a few friends that dont eat sushi, Shonos offers a full hibachi grill, (try the eddie's special.) – joe csta, Urbanspoon
