Spotting a helicopter hovering over the Palmetto during rush hour means you're in for an epic jam, so pass the time with tantalizing thoughts of today's deals from Asi's Grill & Sushi Bar: Pay $29 (regularly $48-$75) for a dinner for two, including one appetizer, two entrees, and a dessert; or pay $20 for $40 to spend on sushi.
Calling this establishment a Mediterranean eatery would hardly skim the surface of the noshery's culinary offerings. You'll have plenty to look forward to among the shawarma platters piled high with marinated lamb and chicken, pink salmon filets garnished with roasted garlic, and homemade dessert options like orange amaretto cake. Sushi fans will want to steer toward fresh samplings like the tender tuna and avocado roll or the crunchy spider roll stuffed with crabmeat and drizzled with tangy YII sauce. Chef and owner Asi David has created a sleek yet welcoming atmosphere in this dinner venue -- making it one place you won't mind staying at a standstill.
