Many weeks ago rectangular openings filled with dirt but level to the ground appeared dotting the cement sidewalks lining Frederick Douglass Blvd (8th avenue). See our previous post A Million Trees coming to Frederick Douglass Boulevard in South Harlem?
These plots have now been filled with wonderful new trees, the variety of which I am uncertain. This will be nice in the summer months especially for the restaurants which have outdoor seating.
We find this very exciting and something to look forward to this spring.
If you have any information to share drop us a line!

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.
