Hidden in the vibrant South Harlem, Nakajima At Jado Sushi is a jewel box of authentic Edomae sushi, devoted to inspire sushi connoisseurs. It is here where renowned sushi chef Kunihide Nakajima, a third generation sushi chef from Tokyo, works with his magic, preparing the true Edomae sushi with freshest and best quality fish shipped daily from regional fish markets and the Tokyo Tsukiji market.
Edomae, or classic Tokyo regional style, with 400 years of history, has become rare even in Tokyo. Jado Sushi is proud to be the only restaurant serving the art of true Edomae cuisine to New Yorkers.
Master chef Nakajima’s seasonal multi-course meal to showcase freshest fish and rare delicacies. Served at sushi counter only. Limited availability. Around $140, depending on market.
For those who'd like to enjoy sushi only, we also offer Nakajima Sushi Omakase. Enjoy ten pieces of exquisite Edomae sushi that Chef Nakajima prepared specially for the day. Served at sushi counter only. Limited availability. From $85.
Reservation by telephone is required for Omakase dinners (sorry no Opentable for this). Please specify that you would like to sit in front of chef Nakajima. Due to the fact that Chef Nakajima orders his fish specifically for his Omakase, any cancellations within 48 hours will induce a fee of $85 per person.
Chef Nakajima prides himself in the fact that he does not use any farmed fish in his omakase. If no good quality wild tuna is available, for example, he will not use any. His goal is to please his customers that appreciate his passion and dedication to his craft.
