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 $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and drinks at Wasabi Asian Bistro & Sushi Bar.
The chefs at Wasabi Asian Bistro fuse the culinary traditions of Japan, China, and Thailand to forge fresh new ways to enjoy Asian cuisine. A batch of homemade signature dumplings ($5–$7) tops the menu and formally commences the feast with puffy morsels of dough packed with chicken, pork, veggies, or shrimp. Artisan chefs craft seaweed-wrapped niblets at the sushi bar, delighting mouths with creations such as the alaskan roll ($9) or the avocado-clad caterpillar roll ($11). Tangerine beef pairs savory strips of tender meat with squirts of citrusy zest ($14), and the seafood tofu pot ($16) graces tables with a toothsome cauldron-based entree that calls to mind memories of blustery days or years spent waitressing for a witch. Wine and sake pairings accompany the epicurean eats with palate-cleansing flavors.
Guests can perch can on stainless steel stools at the sushi bar to enjoy the modern décor, characterized by green walls and espresso furnishings. Formal dining tables provide additional seating, and polished stone floors cater to ambient footsteps and weekly Olympic curling practice.
