In Japan, fish grow up hoping to become sushi, just as in America, children grow up hoping to become fish. Achieve your own gastro goals with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi and Asian fusion fare at Triad Sushi Lounge in the South Loop.
Triad engages eaters with a menu of fresh sushi, pan-Asian noodles, and spicy entrees in a hip, modern atmosphere. The smorgasbord of sushi includes two dozen varieties of nigiri and sashimi ($1.50+), as well as cylindrical savories such as sahara maki ($8.50), which combines tuna, yellowtail, jalapeno pepper, avocado, masago, and cilantro with spicy sesame oil and lime. Upon request, Triad will replace wasabi paste with fresh wasabi (market price; not available in all seasons) to startle sinuses and buoy the spirits of taste buds feeling glum about not being asked to the palate prom. Bring friends and share an order of kaki fry, deep-fried oysters with lemon and a plum Japanese barbecue sauce ($6), or bring hungry enemies and force them to watch you enjoy yaki tori, marinated grilled chicken skewered with bell pepper and onion ($6). The seafood sanctum also serves a bounty of noodles, such as the tempura udon, served with shrimp and vegetable tempura in a seasoned broth ($8), as well as hearty entrees such as Triad's original five-spice pork chop ($15).
Before or after the chopsticking, sip a saketini ($10) in Triad's lush lounge, in which sleek styling complements the main dining rooms rich crimson hues, dark cheery woods, and bamboo accents. The restaurant's dim lighting and chic decor make it a great destination for a first date, an impressive dinner with clients, or a night out to celebrate the reversal of a fish-allergy diagnosis.
