Signs for Harlem's first Japanese owned sushi eatery are up at 2118 Frederick Douglass Boulevard and we were lucky enough to get a rendering of the planned interior from the proprietor. Nobu Otsu runs the successful Winery store on West 116th Street and will be opening Jado Sushi and Wine Bar on the lower FDB corridor in the next coming months. Construction is all on schedule at the space located just north of 114th Street and we have been informed that the new establishment has a debut date set for this coming June.
