The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of nigiri, sushi, wine, and beer during dinner at Utage Athens Sushi Bar.
The culinary authors at Utage Athens Sushi Bar compose compelling nonfiction masterpieces about tasty Japanese cuisine. The 10-piece lobster-roll dish, a maki plate, weaves avocado, cucumber, lettuce, and masago into a flavorful fabric of deep-fried lobster ($12.50). Utage stultifies hunger with 26 varieties of authentic raw nigiri, one for each human sense.
Pair an entree of tekka-don sushi―a smattering of sliced raw tuna canopying a foundation of sushi rice ($16.95)―with a liquid selection from the wine and beer roster, such as a Santi pinot grigio imported from the historic peninsula of Italy ($5.75). Or, unite a tandem of chicken and salmon ($14.95) with a 12-ounce Sapporo beer ($4), which, like many quality cars and most of the cast of Friends, hails from Japan.
