If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon to Sushi Rock, valid at locations in Beachwood, Cleveland, and Columbus. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of prime steaks and award-winning sushi for dinner after 5 p.m.

Sushi Rock’s talented flavorsmiths inject contemporary style into traditional Asian cuisine, forging a menu worthy of an award for Best Sushi from the Fox 8 Hot List in 2010. Brimming with the bounty of the sea, the kitchen rolls succulent slivers of fish within the gentle embrace of pillowy rice to create signature maki ($4.50+). The entire aquaria of sesame seared tuna ($30) douse themselves in citrus buerre blanc and a confetti of broccolini, and 14 ounces of USDA Prime new york strip steak ($38) turns up the heat with flame-kissed flavor and advice on tenderizing love ballads. For noontime feasts, the lunch menu caters to midday hunger pangs with bento boxes such as the maki combo ($13), which arranges california, cucumber, and tuna rolls into a comestible Pythagorean delight, and a grilled chicken box ($13) that layers 6 ounces of grilled poultry beneath a glaze of house teriyaki sauce ($13).
Each of the locations’ dining rooms invites diners to observe dexterous chefs at work with a full sushi bar. The vibrantly colored spaces keep diners at ease with warm tones, hanging lamps, and a steady stream of culinary consciousness that flows from kitchen to table.
The staple of Sushi Rock’s menu is its selection of roughly 50 sushi, sashimi, and maki rolls, which collect multiple Japanese flavors into one neat package. The Sushi Rock roll alone packs a punch of shrimp tempura, crabstick, salmon, tuna, asparagus, and masago. A slate of USDA Prime steaks and fresh seafood entrees such as sesame-seared tuna complement the sushi-bar creations. Each meticulously plated dish arrives in Sushi Rock's ultra-modern dining space, where backlit bottles glisten against a cityscape mural in the bar area, and color blocks of red and black pop in the dimly lit dining areas. Together, Sushi Rock’s choice food and hip vibe earned it a No. 1 ranking on CityVoter's Best Sushi list in 2010.
