We stopped by the first night of Jadore Jado Sunday’s at Jado Sushi this past weekend.  It was a nice sized crowd for this new weekly LGBT party.  We arrived with friends around 9:30 pm but unfortunately had to leave early.  HarlemCondoLife looks forward to stopping by again sometime soon.

Nobu (the owner of Jado and The Winery in Harlem) was making the rounds and was a gracious host.  The DJ was good and spinning great paradise garage style feel good soulful house.

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!

Quote: Martin Luther King Jr – On equality

Harlem has always been a sanctuary for the different.  This continues today as yet another wave of LGBT immigrants join those already settled in Harlem.  Harlem is a place with a rich history of advocating for freedoms of all kind for everyone.  Based on a principle stated simply and forcefully by Martin Luther King Jr.  A phrase worth remembering as we live through the United States Supreme Court grappling with the momentous question of whether gay and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to marry.  The outcome of which will be of interest to many in our village of Harlem and their families and friends, in Harlem and beyond.   View the latest here.
