Jade is another eatery and lounge that I would consider a hidden treasure. Walking into Jade, I was immediately excited when I saw the small running pool of beautiful fish with a Buddha statue right above it. My friend tells the waitress “she wants to sit next to the fish.” Shows how well she knows me right? :-) Jade’s walls are also covered with inspirational quotes by the most famous thinkers and leaders of the past. These two in combination provide a “Zen” feeling and a relaxed atmosphere. This decor and ambiance is perfect for an intimate date or relaxed hang out for friends or family.
I had the shrimp tempura rolls which were pretty good. As an entree, or Large Plate, I had the Black Peppercorn Skirt Steak. It was tougher than I would’ve liked but the sauce was good. My friend had the Pad Thai with chicken which she said was good. Jade also supplies Hookah which I didn’t try but next time I go I will.
Lastly, it wouldn’t be my blog if I didn’t throw in some extra information that caught my eye. Jade has a small little machine on every table where you make your order with the help of the waitress and also pay for your meal. It was my first time using it, and I thought it was pretty cool and useful.
