Critics, upstate: There’s a reason Jasmine Asian Cuisine and Sushi Bar tops Borin’s list. “The food is always fresh and consistent,” she says. “I’m not a raw fish fan, but I love the stir-fried dishes and the steamed edamame in pods, which are perfect to enjoy over good conversation.” The menu features eclectic elements of Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai food. The sleek interior and incandescent lighting scream high end. (But don’t be afraid to bring your kids. Families are welcome.) “It’s a wonderful addition to eateries in North Wilmington.” (3618 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 479-5618)
