Above the bustle of the Diamond District, along a staircase leading to watch-repairers and jewelry polishers, you’d never expect to find a sushi chef ensconced in a brightly lit space. The incongruity doesn’t trouble the patrons of Diamond Garden, with a mixed Jewish and Asian staff providing glatt kosher Japanese and Chinese cuisine. With a few teriyakis available, most of the Japanese menu focuses on fresh, well-constructed sushi. The ruby roll, of avocado and spicy tuna inside, is topped with slabs of crimson tuna. Spicy salmon tartare arrives in a generous tangerine mound, bright with scallions and salty roe. On the Chinese side, noodles and rice join beef, veal, chicken, and vegetables. Beef with garlic sauce may lack authenticity, but the brown sauce is hearty, and broccoli provides a crisp counterpoint to the tender meat. The restaurant’s setting is basic, with a sparse collection of framed Asian calligraphy and undistinguished wooden tables and chairs. An open-air balcony in the back offers a pleasant perch for people-watching.
