When it was the Forest Hills Inn decades ago, the building that now houses Jade Eatery & Lounge hosted John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors and Björn Borg. Now it’s a slick Pan-Asian venue with votive candles, silver walls and a reflecting pool. The bar and restaurant function as a little bit of everything: sushi bar, art gallery, Moroccan lounge, nightclub and party space. Sushi chef Anson Chou, who honed his skills at the Four Seasons Shanghai, takes some welcome liberties with the classics: His sushi pizza, an eight-wedge pie of firmly fried rice, comes topped with spicy tuna, salmon and crunchy bits of tempura. Come summer, you can order drinks and small plates inside the oak-shaded garden. All it’s missing is a tennis court.

Located in eloquent Station Square in Forest Hills Garden, Jade Eatery is a restaurant\bar that is nice place to drink and decent place to eat. The restaurant is a large open space that stretches down a hall to a private dining room. The main dining area has a small pool of water in the center and the ambiance is dark and tranquil. If meeting friends for a drink, the bartenders are attentive and the vibe is good. If you are having a meal, the food is okay. The menu jumps around between a few different Asian types of cuisine, but never really hits the mark on any of them. Dining outside during warmer months is pleasant and you get to people, and train, watch.
