Since humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of sushi and more at Zuma Sushi, which earned a Best of Citysearch award in 2006 and 2007. This Groupon is good at the Highland Avenue or Decatur locations.
Zuma's extensive menu offers traditional and innovative sushi rolls, sashimi, and nigiri, made from the freshest ocean-plucked fish available. Pair your catch with a selection of 20+ sakes, all served in a chic, cosmopolitan environment. Start with an order of lobster tempura for a crunchy meal-beginning bite ($14.50) or the scallop carpaccio ($9.95) for a textured treat. Traditionalists will enjoy entreeing on the hamachi sashimi ($5.50) or the calamari roll, which swaddles the crispy-fried squid with cucumber and spicy mayo in a blanket of rice ($5.50). Those with more contemporary tongues can stare at one of the 15 chef's special rolls, such as the Godzilla, a barbecue eel and bonita flake-topped roll stuffed with golden-fried lobster, cucumber, and a touch of mayonnaise ($14), and the falcon roll, with fresh tuna, salmon, yellowtail, whitefish, and smelt roe lovingly hugged by rice ($12.50), before introducing it to one of their mouths. In addition to sushi, the Decatur location also serves Korean cuisine.
Zuma's laudable libations accompany bites into bellies, including a diverse selection of beer, wine, more than 20 varietals of sake, and sake cocktails. Wash down a satisfying serving of sushi with a sour-apple saketini ($7), or add drinkable barley to a meal with an imported Asahi ($4.50).
