I happened to be one of those sushi lovers that popped up when sushi became mainstream and popular for yuppies, hipsters, and college students alike. I don't like avocados (gasp the horror!), so I was adverse to sushi for a very long time, until I realized that I could order many of the rolls without it. When I found this out, I quickly made sushi a favorite meal option of mine. That being said, I have found my favorite sushi place in the US, and whenever possible I try to have dinner at this restaurant because the food is oh so worth it. Jade Eatery and Lounge in Forest Hills (Queens), NY has the most delicious sushi and sashimi of any sushi restaurant I've tried, and I've gone to quite a few.
The shrimp tempura roll($9) and the spicy tuna roll($7) are my favorites but I have had many equally delicious rolls and sashimi that are definitely worth the price. The fried rice is also a great choice if you want something hot as a good compliment with the cold dishes. If you like shrimp, definitely get the shrimp tempura roll which is the perfect blend of hot and cold, as well as the most delectable blend of flavors. This is a perfect date, group of friends, or party place. The decor is sophisticated and warm with Asian flare. I would suggest reserving for groups more than 2, especially on the weekend, as it is always full of people enjoying the fantastic food. So if you are in the New York area, definitely stop by Jade for lunch or dinner. You will not be disappointed.
