The Scene: We got our first look of United Provisions' the Dining District -- the new hybrid grocer and prepared-foods vendor in the Delmar Loop -- just last month. The shiny new facility's open kitchen currently offers everything from sandwiches to charcuterie, but a sandwich board that sits at the entrance advertises the restaurant's specialty: sushi. Several area students have already caught on to the Friday food deal, so show up early to get a piece of the half-price action.

The Food: The Dining District features a special happy-hour menu that starts with appetizers: edamame, seaweed salad, octopus salad and miso soup -- each for $2.75 or less. The menu continues with a la carte nigiri or sashimi ($.36 to $1.50) including quail egg and eel, and it concludes with a list of more than fifteen sushi rolls that range from avocado and asparagus rolls ($2.25 to $2.50) to specialty combinations including "Mexican" and "Crunch" rolls ($5).
