Choose to dine at one of the following three restaurants:

The Sushi Smackdown, a pilot production for the forthcoming Sushi and the City television series, showcases top sushi restaurants competing to craft the finest eats. After selecting their preferred establishment, duos can sample 17 menu items, including appetizers, sashimi, rolls, and desserts and one specially prepared dish while chatting with two to six tablemates about the feasibility of grilling a piece of raw fish over a glow-in-the-dark watch. Miso's master sushi chef updates traditional Japanese flavors with modern flair in colorful rolls such as the Mr. Yoshida, which combines tempura shrimp with spicy tuna and crab. Samurai Sushi pleasantly surprises dining duets with unusual ingredient combinations, like the c-webber roll, which merges snow crab, avocado, grilled scallops, and creamy peanut butter; Akebono livens up a list of specialty rolls with other sea-inspired cuisine, including deep-fried squid legs and oysters on the half shell.

Even after their sushi cravings have been satisfied, diners can return to the eateries at a later date to enjoy $50 worth of sushi bucks in the form of $5 gift certificates to each of the three participating restaurants—Akebono, Miso, and Samurai Sushi.
