this site is absolutely awesome! I feel like I just found a new home! Ok here is my contribution:
I was driving along Edgewater Dr and I stumbled onto a new place called Jade Bistro (www.jadebistro.com). The place looked clean and the decor and the staff portrayed a feel of casual elegance so I said what the heck. I must say..this is now my pick for THE BEST CHINESE/ SUSHI RESTAURANT IN TOWN. They did everything right. Let's go down the list:
Their sushi is prepared fresh by 2 authentic Japanese sushi chefs and from the color, texture, and taste of the tuna and yellowtail sashimi that I ordered, it is simply the best I've had in town at any price range.
I had their Hawaiin Pineapple Beef. When it was brought out to my table, I thought I died and went to luau heaven. They use real flank steak and core a fresh pineapple..then sauteed the ingredients and serve it back in the fresh pineapple shell! It was so tender and juicy! Apparently they have a seperate head chef in charge of the cooked entrees. And the owners have had chinese restaurants in ny. By the way, it was only $13.95!
I never had to ask for refills, the servers were all friendly and pretty well polished (although one of them mistakenly filled my regular pepsi with diet), the host and hostess genuinely greeted each guest and even raced to open the door to let each customers enter or exit. I've never seen this type of service even at more expensive so-called "high class" asian restaurants.
they are practically the same price as "regualar run of the mill" chinese or thai restaurants!!
One visit is too soon to tell, but so far, they are on track to become the best sushi in town AND the best chinese food in town....simply amazing.
