☞ INTRODUCING: Jado Sushi Interior Revealed

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.  Read the Harlem Bespoke interview with the Nobu Otsu in our past post: LINK

  3. Jado is the first Japanese owned sushi joint. This is very common downtown at authentic eateries but rare uptown. There are quite a few asian owned sushi restaurants in greater Harlem but they are mostly Chinese establishments or other Asian groups that happen to sell sushi.

  4. This is an awesome addition to Harlem. I love Nobu and his winery store!

  5. Great addition to the Frederick Douglass Boulevard corridor, Jado Sushi both raises the bar and adds diversity to the dining options of lower FDB. Also good to see a local entrepreneur Nobu Otsu investing his talent into his neighborhood.
