The carefully rolled nature of sushi makes it ideal for starting snowballs, which is why it's commonly known as "snowman heart." Eat to the center of snow with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese cuisine at Tsunami Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar in Concord.
Tsunami's sushi artisans craft shrimp and salmon into delectable masterworks, and skilled chefs skewer and sauté tantalizing, grilled hibachi fare that can be prepared right at the table. After studying the menu, patrons can opt for the popular wasabi shumai appetizer cozying six steamed wasabi-encrusted pork dumplings up to a scrumptious bath of spicy mayo ($5.95). Then, cherry-pick a smoked-salmon-and-cream-cheese-slathered Boston roll ($5) from the sushi menu, which, like a paper list of people who participate in the Internet, is extensive. Marvel at the sleeping-bag-rolling implications of the restaurant’s viewable bar, where sushi craftsmen form the chirashi don dinner of a dozen pieces of chef’s-choice seafood complemented by sushi rice and cucumber and reinforced with bubbling onion soup or salad ($17.95). Guests can spurn meat by imbibing one of the vegetarian options, such as the cucumber-and-avocado vegan roll ($4).
Tsunami’s vibrant red and green walls house ample booth, table, and sushi-bar seating, and are complemented by black, ventilated ceilings for the ogle-inspiring hibachi preparations and disappearance-masking samurai smoke. Outdoor seating is also available, weather permitting.
