1 Station Square
Forest Hills, NY 11375
(718) 793-2203

As I've already reviewed Jade on eateryROW, I won't bother to re-review it. Not much has really changed since last year.

I have chosen to start this blog with Jade, however, because of that fateful Forest Hills Celebrity & Entertainment Magazine issue I mentioned in my intro post. Allow me to quote the text from the April/May 2008 issue:

"The first thing that catches your eye when you walk into Jade are the two giant pillars in the middle of the room. At closer look you can see that each pillar is carved, and decorated in candles. Between the two pillars is a beautiful reflecting pool with a statue at the head. The water in the room embraces the candlelight coming from not only the pillars but all around the room and makes for one of the most romantic settings I've ever seen. As I peered at the candles flickering in the crystal water I couldn't help but think that this would be the perfect place for couples. Not just a date though, this is the place where you can whisk her away for a secret rendezvous. A glass of wine from the extensive wine list, the soft candlelight on her face, and the aromatics from the brilliant food will have you sweeping her off her feet and into your arms in no time."

If you're not laughing at this description, then you have no soul.

Clearly this guy has never eaten here. I mean, who describes food, let alone Thai food, as "brilliant"? I love Thai food, but don't bullshit me to fill up some space. "Secret rendezvous"? "Sweeping her off her feet"? The "crystal waters"? This reads like an ad for Perillo Tours.

Let's get a few things straight. This is easily the sexiest restaurant in Forest Hills. The interior is heavily candlelit and there's a big reflecting pool right smack in the middle of the room. It's flat out trendy. They have a good cocktail list and I suggest you order from it. But what about the "extensive wine list"? I've never even seen it. As for "sweeping her off her feet", that part will come a couple of hours and a few of those cocktails later. Sweep her off her feet and out of her panties (since it's easier with her feet off the ground).

And yet the nice thing about Jade is that you can still go with your guy friends without weirding them out while at the same time you SHOULD go here with a date if you want her to think sexy thoughts instead of cliched "romantic" ones. There's a club vibe. It's just a plain cool place to go.

With warm weather approaching, I suggest sitting outside if you can (see above photo). With the cobblestones and trees, you won't be disappointed.
