Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
Harlem now has a few Japanese places to choose from but Jado Sushi on FDB and 114th Street is the clear standout amongst the other. Sarku Japan on 125th Street, Charlie's on Fifth Avenue and Nikko on Amsterdam provide standard takeout sushi fare but Jado is the only one in Harlem that is on the higher end, Japanese owned and has an updated, modern look. The owner opened up The Winery in the area several years back and has since found further success with this new South Harlem gem.
