New to the lunch crowd: Nitrogen Bar, Grill & Sushi


Nitrogen Bar, Grill & Sushi is at 6700 W. Indiantown Road, just east of I-95 in Jupiter, and it’s sort of hidden in the back of a line of shops, which means some folks miss this little gem. It’s called an “Asian-fusion-style” restaurant, and I call it yummy. It just started lunch hours (Tuesday-Friday, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.), and serves up dishes such as the Bento Box (pictured), or seared wahoo tacos, or a Tribeca grilled cheese and tomato soup. Dinner is served Tuesday-Saturday, 5 p.m.-10 p.m.
