Jado Sushi Harlem – Menu (Update)

Jado Sushi Harlem

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.

Kersten is a graduate from Yale University with a BA in Music and African American Studies. A three-time Amateur Night at the Apollo winner and a three-time “Showtime at the Apollo” champion, she currently serves the Apollo Theater as the on-camera personality and social media correspondent for Amateur Night at the Apollo.

About The 5 and Diamond Restaurant

Part of Manhattan’s culinary world has rooted itself in one of the most cutting edge neighborhoods in NYC—Harlem. The 5 and Diamond Restaurant is located on Frederick Douglass Boulevard, referred to as the new “Restaurant Row” by the New York Times.

The 5 and Diamond Restaurant offers refined contemporary American fare and genuine Harlem hospitality. Chef David Martinez prepares food with passion — combining fresh seasonal ingredients and bold flavors with a refined presentation. He is committed to local, organic produce and is inspired by his culinary experience here and in Europe. The 5 and Diamond Restaurant is upscale casual with large windows, sexy lighting, vibrant floral arrangements and soft jazzy music in the background. It is an easy place to drop in at any time. Dine alone at the intimate bar, or enjoy a drink or meal while watching your favorite sports event. Come with friends and family to celebrate, or have a romantic dinner for two. Just remember to leave enough room for the decadent desserts, all made in-house.

 

Cafe Amrita Now Has Outdoor Seating

Now you can enjoy Cafe Amrita indoors and outdoors.  A friend of HarlemCondoLife let us know that Cafe Amrita now has outdoor seating.  They have been steadily doing good business now for many years and their additional seating looks great.

Conveniently located 0n 110th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard right by the subway stop, Amrita is a great spot to have a coffee solo or a beer with a friend.  We often have our Blog meetings there as they also have wi-fi.  Please see our review by Austin2Harlem from a couple years back of Cafe Amrita.
