JKOO — For a relatively small town, Newtown has more than its share of Asian eateries. And its newest addition is JKoo.
Located in an unassuming storefront in Plaza South, JKoo has a surprisingly sleek decor. The small entry gives way to a spacious bar area with general seating behind and to the side. The space is decorated with modern light fixtures, textured tile and lots of light-reflecting glass. In addition to the bar and dining area, there is a sushi bar with several stools.
The menu is vast, with a variety of sushi and sashimi options, including the J.Koo Roll, a soy bean nori wrap with fresh lobster salad, cucumber and mango, topped with wasabi tobiko and black tobiko ($16).
Also available are box lunches (a bargain at $9), entrees such as Chilean Sea Bass, Spicy Mango Chicken and a variety of noodle dishes.
Prices here are reasonable, especially for the lunch crowd.
JKoo is located in Plaza South at 266 South Main St. in Newtown and is open for lunch and dinner daily, 203-270-8880.
