What You'll Get
Sushi, like the archival footage of Mark McGwire's birth, is best known for its raw quality. Get attached to your food with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi and Asian fusion fare at Xaga Sushi in Hewlett or Merrick.
The culinary artists at Xaga Sushi furl comestibles from a menu that gives diners glimpses of sashimi sea legs and flirtatious fusion winks. During roll call, guests give shout outs to a Pink Lady roll ($12) and her mix of spicy crab, eel, avocado, and tobiko, all wrapped in a pink soy paper. Caribbean rolls ($12) sparkle with a regal blend of eel, spicy crunch tuna, avocado, and a four-tiered crown of caviar ($12). Those who prefer their aquatic life cooked may scale Xaga's Snow Mountain rolls of tempura shrimp ($11), and others toss black pepper steak cubes ($15) across tables like a game of meat dice in the alley.
A hushed, fuchsia glow settles over the contemporary dining room while diners recline in white booths nudged against panels of gauzy drapes. Stacks of multi-colored lights slink up Xaga's exposed, structural columns, tempting diners to play vertical games of Simon after dinner.
