Raw fish, like snowballs, must be rolled with care before being thrown at a school superintendent for refusing to call a snow day. Enjoy well-crafted, conveniently projectile edibles with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi and Asian-inspired fare at The Fish Restaurant and Sushi Bar.
A bright-blue aquarium glows amid the red-and-black décor of The Fish Restaurant and Sushi Bar's dining room, where patrons dive in to specialty nigiri and sashimi sushi and a variety of Asian-inspired entrees. Hungry mobs can conquer the godzilla roll, stabbing its morsels of crab, avocado, and jalapeños with miniature pitchforks ($11), or put down their arms and cradle sweet shrimp ($4) or chopped scallop ($12) nigiri.
For lunch, refuel on entrees such as barbecue short ribs steeped in garlic-soy marinade and honey and orbited by miso soup, steamed rice, veggie tempura, and salad ($13). Like Lady Justice balancing truth and fairness with 5 pounds of old bus tokens, the dinner menu balances the 6-ounce skirt steak and five-spice pesto tuna ($19 each) with sides such as macaroni gratin, pickled onions, and tempura asparagus.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning The Fish Restaurant and Sushi Bar a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
