Red Ginger of Georgetown

I've walked by this place a few times, but its always been on a Monday when it is closed. The Caribbean-style menu on their website sounds very interesting and delicious, so I was thinking about checking it out some time. Has any one been here and if so, what did you think of it?

  1. I believe it is closed - the owners have opened up a new place in DuPont (name escapes me).

      Cafe Trope. It's right down the street from my apartment but haven't been yet. Menu doesn't really do it for me---seems like it can be hit or miss and I rarely see more then a few people in there. I guess I'm waiting for someone to convince me to check it out :)

    2. I don't think it is closed. I just walked by yesterday and they looked about to open for lunch. I've been to the Red Ginger several times and the food has always been phenomenal. I like spicy food, though they'll make it seasoned the way you like. The service is incredible -- everyone is so nice and the chef likes to come out and talk to his guests -- he's the sweetest man!

      The only reason we don't go there more often is because it's in Georgetown and the parking is always a nightmare. When we DO go, we go early so we can park. At least it's located high up on Wisconsin above the craziness of M Street.

        My bad. Apparently the Red Ginger location is for sale, but Cafe Trope is owned by the same person.
