Jeff Roberto—whose hand-rolled masterpieces were nibbled on the set of the films Titanic, Pearl Harbor, and Elizabethtown—leads group explorations in the art of sushi preparation during interactive sushi-making classes. Classes, running 1.5–2 hours, commence with an assessment of how many edamame you can stuff in your cheeks before you begin tucking vegetable fillings in sheets of seaweed with the help of a bamboo mat. Fingers bundle more advanced tubular foodstuffs such as california rolls, as well as rolls specially designed for Groupon. Students jot down notes on the proper consistency of sushi rice, when to sprinkle rolls with sesame seeds, and how to repurpose chopsticks as the mast of a ship-in-a-bottle. Throughout the lesson, request samples of sake or other drinks from the bar (beverages not included in the cost of this Groupon).

A cerulean-blue mural with swimming koi backdrops the expansive 30-seat sushi bar, outlined in neon to highlight the dramatic curve of the space. The expansive venue accommodates up to 100 people, making it popular among large groups of friends looking for a fun outing and U.S. senators playing hooky. Free parking is also available.

Jeff Roberto, a sushi expert, brings a plethora of experience to his San Diego sushi oasis. He has catered large events of up to 16,000 guests as well as the sets of such Hollywood films as Titanic, Pearl Harbor, and Elizabethtown.

Roberto also leads group explorations in the art of sushi preparation during interactive sushi-making classes held inside a private sushi bar. Two-hour classes commence with an assessment of how many edamame you can stuff in your cheeks before you begin tucking vegetable fillings in sheets of seaweed with the help of a bamboo mat. Students jot down notes on the proper consistency of sushi rice, when to sprinkle rolls with sesame seeds, and how to repurpose chopsticks as the mast of a ship-in-a-bottle.
