This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - 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.
"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
Sadly, our final meal at Blue Ginger was disappointing. From the hostess pointedly ignoring my husband to acknowledge another person upon their arrival to finding the lobster entrée not as delectable as in the past, the evening left us disheartened we had selected Blue Ginger for a Grandparents Birthday celebratory dinner. While we wish Ming and Polly well with their new ventures, it appears the Blue Ginger we enjoyed so fondly over the years has moved on as well.
One of the chef's specials, the Garlic-Black Pepper Lobster, was one of the best meals that I have ever eaten. The lobster was cooked to perfection - the key, however, was the sauce. Robust, intensely favorable, with a pleasant amount of "kick".
Sad to see Blue Ginger closing. If you haven't eaten here, do so before June 3rd. You won't be disappointed. I want wish my buddy Ming all the success in his new chapter and journey. Thanks for the great meals my friend.
My husband and I were dining with another couple for the last time before Blue Ginger closes. I have always been grateful for the attention to my anaphylactic food allergies. Ming Tsai was overseeing the kitchen that evening so I felt especially safe. Our server was gracious but it took exactly two and a half hours to get our dinner. I find this unacceptable! It ruined what was supposed to be a very special evening with close friends. We paid for our appetizers and the manager offered us our dinners for free. Despite this generous gesture, we were deeply disappointed.
Loved the chance to have one more meal at Blue Ginger before it closes. The butterfish was amazing and my guest enjoyed the lamb rack, plus the shumei app. Ming came by our table which was a special treat. Thank you to him and the WONDERFUL front of the house staff for making this a memorable experience.
Private lot is in rear of building off of Church Street. There is also ample metered street parking in front of the restaurant.
