Splashy, two-level Asian steakhouse and sushi restaurant Jade Sixty has closed its doors at least temporarily, following a water main break and just over six months on the Upper East Side.
The upscale restaurant at 116 East 60th St., between Park and Lexington avenues, opened in December and serves a wide-ranging menu including fusion fare like pastrami dumplings and short rib bao, more traditional sushi and sashimi, and steakhouse classics like filet mignon and shrimp cocktail.
The project comes from restaurateurs Stratis Morfogen and Franco Moscato. Morfogen was a founding force behind clubby, Asian-ish restaurants like Philippe Chow and Jue Lan Club, while Moscato also owns Rothman’s steakhouse.
A rep for the restaurant says it will reopen after a summer renovation, but when it does, it might not be a Jade Sixty anymore.
The restaurant, housed in a renovated 1920s brownstone, seats 175 people. When it first opened, Morfogen told Eater that the idea was a marriage of his Asian-ish restaurant background and Moscato’s steakhouse one. Nobody reviewed it during its tenure, and Yelp is currently watching its page because “a number of positive reviews for this business originated from the same IP address.”
