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!
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.
Last night was the Grand Opening of Jado Sushi in Harlem and it was an enjoyable night and a great crowd. It has actually already been open for two weeks now but the Grand Opening makes it official.
This early evening cocktail party included a variety of delicious Hors d’oeuvres and selected sushi along with wine and prosecco. They have an extensive wine menu here at Jadu Sushi which comes to no surprise as Nobu Otsu also owns The Winery just up the street.
At one point it felt like the who’s who of Harlem. Melba Wlison, owner of Melbas, Londel Davis, owner of Londel’s Supper Club and The L Lounge, Lia Sanfilippo, one of the owners of The Five and Diamond, Henock Kejela, owner of Zoma, Ernesto Gonzalez, one of the owners of Harlem Food Bar and Clarence Cooper the general manager for over 30 years (now retired) at Sylvia’s, were just a few of the guests showing their support and welcoming Jado Sushi to the neighborhood. It was also nice to meet bloggers I had never met before for the first time and people in the Harlem media.
With good company, mellow jazz music playing, great wine and delicious appetizers you cannot go wrong. Stop by and check out Jado Sushi for yourself. With their full menu now available you have even more to choose from.
Welcome Jado Sushi and congratulations. If the crowds are any indication diners have been waiting for a sushi restaurant like this to come to the neighborhood and are happy that you are here.
Jado Sushi is open tonight to the public. Tonight is what owner Nobu Otsu is calling their soft opening where you will be able to sample selected items from the full menu which will be coming soon. The grand opening will be in a couple of weeks.
Nobu is also owner of “The Winery” located on 116th Street just off Frederick Douglass Boulevard. We have been looking forward to the opening of Jado Sushi since we heard about it first hand from Nobu at the end of last year. The interior has a sophisticated and elegant feel to it and extends further back than you would think by looking at the front of the restaurant. HarlemCondoLife will be bringing you much more on the newest restaurant on Harlem’s Restaurant Row in the days to come. Stay tuned…
Welcome to the neighborhood Jado Sushi!
