Blue Ginger, located in Wellesley, is Ming Tsai's award-winning flagship restaurant. This feng-shui inspired space offers three distinct dining options. There's the informal Lounge serving Asian tapas in a more casual setting. No reservations are required in the Lounge. The main dining room features an open kitchen for you to experience mastery at work. The menu features Ming's signature East-West cuisine, including his famous Miso-Sake Marinated Sablefish and Black Pepper Lobster. And lastly, there are three private dining rooms for larger groups or functions wanting to be enjoyed away from the crowd.<br /><br />"Blue Ginger is unusual, not only because of the food or the room, but because it's a neighborhood restaurant of a type not found too often in the Boston area...those of us who live farther away will just have to travel now that the secret is out." --The Boston Globe <br />

"This is the 4th or 5th time we have dined at Blue Ginger. We are from California and we visit our daughter and her family here at least two times a year and we always try to make time for a date night for just my wife and me at Blue Ginger. It rivals the best that we enjoy in Southern Orange County, CA, and oh yes, our server Jill was absolutely perfect and a delight to have serving us. She is a great ambassador for the Blue Ginger restaurant and Ming should be very proud and feel fortunate to have Jill on his team! We'll be back, again and again."

We also boast a full bar featuring specialty mojitos, martinis, and an extensive wine list. We will have live entertainment in the bar on most weekend evenings.
