Recently the owner and general manager of Jado Sushi reached out to HarlemCondoLife about a new event they will be hosting. To celebrate the diversity of the community and their 1-year anniversary, Jado Sushi will launch a new weekly social party for the LGBT community called J’adore Jado Sundays starting on Sunday, July 7th, 2013. We are always happy to hear and encourage businesses that get involved with their neighborhood and community.
This casual party offers the Harlem LGBT community a place to socialize, meet and have fun in the sexy, urban atmosphere that Jado Sushi is known for. At 9 pm, Jado will switch gear to party mode as a live DJ begins to play music. In addition to the regular bar drinks, a selection of special cocktails will be served. Jado’s signature appetizers and sushi rolls will also be available to order. See our previous menu review here. Try their glazed short ribs or Jado chicken appetizers along with the sushi rolls, delicious!
The soon-to-open new sidewalk cafe will offer an additional open-air lounge. Yes, you heard right! Jado will join their neighbors Lido, Bier International, Harlem Food Bar, Harlem Tavern etc, with sidewalk dining in Harlem.
Jado Sushi, the first and only premier sushi restaurant in Harlem, opened on July 25th 2012. We were at their soft opening, grand opening and since then have been back for dinner too many times to count. The food is consistently good, the servers are friendly and efficient. If there are any problems the General Manager (Juan) and Owner (Nobu), are right on point to correct them. At Jado you can expect authentic sushi and Latin inspired dishes in the beautifully designed setting where celebrities like DJ Sway, Danny Glover and Tamara Tunie have been sighted. Harry Belafonte, named as one of three grand marshals for NYC Pride March 2013, also frequents the restaurant. As we have stated before, Jado Sushi is the sister-store of The Winery, the popular wine store on 116th Street just off FDB. Both places we have posted frequently about here on our blog.
Mark your calendars and show support on July 7th for the first Jadore Jado Sunday!
2118 8th Ave (between 114 & 115 St)

Since our first couple visits and reviews of Jado Sushi, we recently went back and were pleased to see that they now offer an impressive assortment of choices on their full menu. Almost too many choices to decide between. In addition to everything that was on the sampler pre-grand opening menu they now offer a large selection of classic dishes as well as many interesting new ones.
We spoke with the owner Nobu, and he said the middle of August had slowed down a little bit with business but they are now busy again and seem to be getting positive reviews. We went on a Tuesday night and it was a good size crowd and the sushi bar in the back was full. Jado is a great place for the “singles crowd” here in Harlem, who want to swing by for a solo dinner on their way home from work. A friend to our blog says that he enjoys sitting at the Sushi bar after work located in the back once a week. Quick, easy, satisfying, healthy and you might even meet someone!
Please see our review of Jado Sushi In Harlem.
Favorite selections from those of us here at HarlemCondoLife: The glazed short ribs, fried oysters and the jado chicken Small Plate starters. The sushi medley or the jado sushi and sashimi ensemble, a great introduction to their sushi. The miso marinated black cod, bok choi. One of the best black cod dishes in the city. Their Fiji green tea to cleanse the palate. If you have any room left for desert the tempura ice cream. A must try.
