Like a tongue on a flagpole in February, fusion cuisine results from curiosity and a shortage of popsicles. Rein in restless taste buds with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a two-course Japanese fusion meal for two at Vango Lounge & Sky Bar (up to a $70 value). The two courses include an appetizer from the small plate menu (up to a $16 value) and two entrees from the large plate or sushi menus (up to a $27 value); this deal is not valid for Kobe beef steak. Groupon users should be advised that Vango Lounge & Sky Bar requires bottle service ($250+) for tables reserved after 10 p.m.

Vango Lounge & Sky Bar fuses traditional Japanese aesthetics with a swanky club atmosphere, where a glowing fiber-optic chandelier dangles overhead, changing colors to the beats of the lounge's two DJs every night. A year-round roof deck with indoor and outdoor spaces sports glimmering views of the skyline, making the restaurant a great date spot for couples or coworkers bound together after a three-legged race. Guests can scan the menu to kick off with the choice of one appetizer such as tuna tartar with mango-balsamic vinaigrette (a $16 value), mingling salty and sweet like a sailor toting a bouquet of flowers, or the pork dumpling served with scallions and sweet chili sauce (a $10 value). Diners can then sink their teeth into two entrees, such as the braised short rib with wasabi mashed potatoes (a $17 value), pan-fried udon with shrimp and scallops (a $17 value), or tempura tuni maki (a $10 value).

Vango Lounge & Sky Bar

Countless fiber-optic cables comprise a titanic custom chandelier in Vango Lounge & Sky Bar’s main dining room, casting a glow over tufted-velvet walls and plates of Japanese continental cuisine. During a typical meal, yellowtail and grilled vegetables may top small plates of crostini, and wasabi mashed potatoes sidle up to larger entrees such as braised-beef short ribs in sweet teriyaki sauce. As chefs compose eel and avocado rolls or slice delicate pieces of salmon sushi, bartenders mix specialty cocktails, such as the Sundance with Absolut Raspberri and Godiva white-chocolate liqueur. Luxe decorations—including wall nooks that display sleek bottles of vodka and a wall that holds 200 inlaid fresh roses every night—dapple the 8,000-square-foot lounge. Upstairs on the roof deck, revelers can admire the surrounding skyline from a seat at the bar, boogie on the dance floor to nightly DJs, or secretly read comic books under the covers of king-size lounge beds.
