Dress Code at Jewel Bako

Has anyone been to Jewel Bako lately? What's their dress code there? Because it's in East Village, I am assuming jeans are ok.. how about t-shirt? I am going there tomorrow night for a friend's birthday dinner and I just wanted to confirm so I don't make a fool out of myself. Also, what's good to order there? Or should I just try the Chef's Omakase? Please let me know. Thanks!

  1. Nice jeans paired with a button down should be fine.

    That said, even though there's no dress code, a lot of folks go there on dates and will be dressed up. As long as you don't feel uncomfortable...

    As for what to order, you get much better fish doing the omakase--and I think it might even be a better value.
