Anyway...Red Lantern in the Back Bay has a great after work deal. We got there right around 5:30 or so, and an hour later the bar was really hopping. For about $20, I had three drinks paired nicely with corresponding appetizers. I even successfully navigated a piece of sushi from the plate to my mouth using only chopsticks. This is sadly a first.
My recommendation from the Kaikaze menu: A Kirin with a (large-ish) tuna rice bite for six dollars. Can't beat that.
