JADE Sixty, the newest and hottest restaurant from well-known restauranteurs Stratis Morfogen and Franco Moscato, has opened in January 2018 in Manhattan. The pair brings their unparalleled expertise to the inventive JADE Sixty concept. Executive Chef Skinny Mei, former chef at Jue Lan Club and Philippe, and Chef Albert Diaz, former chef at Zuma London and Miami, are overseeing the kitchen. The eye-catching and succulent menu will offer American steakhouse, such as aged prime meats, and Asian favorites.
“The marriage of Asian cuisine and Steakhouse specialties has not been done before in this way. This concept is one that Franco and I have been discussing for some time now. We know that the combination of the two will be a great success. The best part about JADE Sixty is that there is a mouthwatering dish for every palate and preference. What other place can you have a Porter House for two, Baked Clams, and Pork Soup Dumplings in one sitting? We are proud to introduce this concept to New York City,” said Morfogen.
The restaurant features a three-course lunch special for $20.18. This includes a choice of appetizer (ex: Chicken Sticks, Crispy Seaweed, Pork Dumplings), entrée (ex: Sweet Crispy Beef, Chicken Flat Noodle), and dessert (Ice cream or Sorbet). Additional lunch specials include the Jumbo Wagyu Burger and Steak Sandwich. JADE Sixty showcases a robust selection of exciting dishes for lunch and dinner including Torched Wagyu with truffle; Salmon Belly with ikura and truffle; Uni with yuzu, koshu and shiso; Roasted “Smokehouse” Duck & Chicken with homemade pancakes made table-side; and Snow Crab with brown butter ponzu.
