Jade Dragon Restaurant: Open for Easter lunch 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
It's another Friday night in early spring, but it could be any season of the year, and the scene would be the same at Warwick's popular restaurant Jade Dragon. In the same booth, at the same time, sit the same three diners who have been coming to this cozy and friendly eatery for "years and years". Cranston residents and brothers Kevin and Dennis Coffey are joined by their mother Sophie for their usual Friday night date; it's a tradition for this close-knit family who come from across town to enjoy the delicious food and familiar company they have come to expect at Jade Dragon. Their favorite booth is waiting for them, and the staff knows what they want before they even utter their first hello.
Leah Ly, their gracious server, brings Sophie a pot of tea, while Kevin gets his Vodka Martini, and Dennis, his Lucky Buddha from the full-service bar. Their orders are predictable too - combination platters #16 and #17, and wonton soup for "grandma" - without the pork, that is. Leah knows this already, but even the Coffeys like to mix it up a bit from time to time. They know that no matter what they order, they will love the taste, presentation and price of the food at Jade Dragon. Like their Friday night date, it is something they can depend on.
Jade Dragon Restaurant has been the home of delicious and affordable Chinese cuisine for twenty-one unbroken years. Over those years, owners Judy and Rickie Chin have accrued a long list of devoted patrons like the Coffeys, many of whom have been fans for all twenty-one of those years. At Jade Dragon, patrons find many enticing dinner entrées as well as a long list of finger-licking-good appetizers (egg rolls, chicken teriyaki, fantail shrimp, and crab Rangoon!) Enjoy one of their 38 different combination platters, their tantalizing appetizers or their Lo Mein, Chow Mein, Fried Rice, Chop Suey and Egg Foo Yong options as well as a huge assortment of poultry, beef, & seafood options. Chef Rickie also has many options available for those with food restrictions such as MSG and gluten allergies.
For your Easter celebration, Jade Dragon is open on Sunday, April 20th from 11:00am to 3:30pm. Celebrate this sacred holiday with a Ham Dinner Special, prepared by Rickie, just for you. For a mere $9.95, enjoy a traditional ham dinner along with soup or salad, potato stuffing, and sweet glazed carrots. Add a 13oz. Bloody Mary topped with three shrimp and you are all set to relax with friends and family.
