Blue Ginger is the flagship restaurant of celebrity chef Ming Tsai. I will admit that I was expecting a celebrity chef operated restaurant to be more about hype than food. I was wrong. We went for a lunch on a beautiful day. Sat outside and ordered a mix of the Asian tapas plates for the table off the Lounge menu. All plates were truly spectacular. I loved the beef sliders, as did everyone in the party. Other hits were the Salmon-Goat Cheese Rangoon and Tempura Shishito Peppers. The only even slight miss was the edamame. The sticky sauce didn't really add much flavor and certainly did not enhance the eating experience. Most in my party were looking for the Blue Ginger Gimlet only to be told it had been replaced by the Washington Street Gimlet, house vodka shaken with freshly squeezed lime and house made ginger syrup. All raved about how good it was. The presentations were perfect and the waiter was great. It was a great day to be outside but the view is just of a Wellesley street. Traffic was minimal so it wasn't a problem, just nothing really to see. All in all a fantastic dining experience.
