Widely agreed upon as the best fare to eat when hungry, a sushi dinner is more than an opportunity to practice chopstick puppetry skills. Enjoy a fulfilling feast with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and drinks at Sushi On The Rocks.
Sushi On The Rocks satiates cultural cravings with fresh Japanese cuisine and sushi, a full drink menu, and live jazz and blues. Mer-meals commence with the classic and intelligence-enhancing miso soup ($3) or hunger-hunting appetizers such as the spicy tuna tataki ($14) or the red snapper carpaccio ($12). The sushi selection consists of 60 nigiri and maki choices ($3.50–$14.99), as well as a number of special rolls cut by a knife so sharp it actually slices through time to deliver rolls from eight minutes in the future. The sizzling flavors of the Fire Dragon roll test spice sensors, and the Oshizushi roll ensconces three kinds of fish under dollops of masago and spicy mayo. Loosen up dancing muscles and jazz hands with sake, a martini, or one of the amalgamated sake martinis featured on the extensive drink menu, and bop along with live blues and jazz between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Thursday–Saturday nights.
Sushi on the Rocks
Sushi on the Rocks pleases the palates, eyes, and ears of patrons with fresh Japanese fare, refreshing libations, and live jazz tunes. Owner John J. Lee crafts nearly 80 nigiri and maki options that range from sweet fresh fruit sushi to elaborate specialty rolls, such as the spicy tuna, tempura shrimp, and asparagus bundled into the Playboy roll. Entrees include grilled chicken drenched in teriyaki sauce, teriyaki steak or chicken options, and new specialty rolls such as the Mexican roll with shrimp tempura, and mixed crab, which is topped with spicy tuna, avocado, and mango. Thirst-quenching hot sake can warm chilled throats and the hearts of fish-loving misers, while more than 10 varieties of wines spare diners the arduous task of juicing their own raisins. Melodies swim through the elegant dining room Thursday and Saturday evenings, tickling eardrums with the sounds of jazz.
