Going to Blue Ginger

I have reservations for dinner at Blue Ginger (Ming Tsai Restaurant). I am very excited, just wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions. Thanks!

      Agree 100% on the butterfish. I don't know how or why it tastes so good but it was really good. How does he do it? Does anyone know?

      1. re: Mike5966

        The butterfish is yummy, but it's really too bad the three-vinegar shrimp is no longer on the menu, because that was the most delicious dish they made.

        If you have any vegetarians in your party, their (usually single) vegetarian dish is always interesting and very good.

        another thumbs up for butterfish....its been a while but remember that was amazing

      3. I recommend the tuna poke on crispy rice cake and the lobster... some of the other dishes can be very good but sometimes inconsistent (duck, lamb, butterfish). avoid the carpaccio.

        1. Foie Gras Shiitake Shumai is a must get.

          1. My two top choices have already been mentioned. I almost always get the tuna poke appetizer followed by the butterfish. Can't go wrong with those. My other favorite is the lobster although I had it once and it was too salty which must mean it had a TON of salt because I never think anything is too salty.

              I ate here on Tuesday and also thought it was too salty (and I like salt). Butterfish was fantastic.

                Interesting. last time I had the butterfish it was too watery/ tasteless (zero sake/miso flavor to speak of), although other times it has been good.

                  i love the poussin and the soft shell crab appetizer.

            2. wow thanks for the responses.... I will post again and let all know what I think

                I was just at BG for lunch today and had an amazing strawberry/rhubarb crisp with cardomom ice cream - get it!

                1. re: sallyt

                  That sounds delicious. You could put cardamom ice cream on a sneaker and I would probably eat it.

                  1. re: Isolda

                    Seriously. I was tempted to ask more more ice cream... It was that good.

                    1. re: sallyt

                      i'm a cardamom fanatic from way back. hoping/guessing you know about cristina's kulfi ice cream?
