The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese and American cuisine and drinks at Spy Global Cuisine & Lounge, located in St. Augustine.
Within a warmly lit, modern interior, Spy Global patrons can feast their eyes on a menu of serious steaks, inventive sushi, and inspired Japanese entrees. Culinary cowboys can explore the textured terrain of a grilled-pepper-encrusted Harris Ranch rib eye, drizzled with a reduced balsamic-cabernet sauce and served with seasonal vegetables and potatoes ($28). A creative cast of sushi rolls pleases petit palates, including the Reilly, which is named after the owner's daughter and offers up the flavorful friction of smoked salmon, fresh pineapple, avocado, and cilantro ($8). Relax with a saketini at the prismatically tiled bar, or sink into cushiony couches and soothing tunes in the restaurant's lounge if you're trying to keep things comfortable on a first date or after a lengthy wall-sit competition.
