CUISINE: Asian, Asian Fusion, Late-Night Dining, Small Plates, Tapas, Gastropub
FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly, Wi-Fi
DETAILS
Blue Ginger chef-owner Ming Tsai's wildly popular Asian gastropub Blue Dragon serves an array of ambitious small plates. 




Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner until late night Mon-Sat. Closed Sun. "The restaurant is a revelation of flavors and preparations, with Tsai right there in the open kitchen, picking up plates and schmoozing with wide-eyed guests. The quandary for you, the diner, is what to order. How do you stop yourself from ordering six, seven, or eight dishes when they're serving Japanese sweet-potato chips with an addictive charred-scallion-and-meat-jus dip; pot stickers jammed with rich braised beef cut with celery; curls of tender pork tail crisped to perfection over sticky rice studded with pulpy chunks of sweet mango; the phenomenal Mom's Salt-and-Pepper Shrimp; and a dozen other dishes I had to save for my next trip?"
— John Mariani, Esquire, The Best New Restaurants 2013

"Adventurous offerings are much more appealing — and, with smaller plates all $13 or less, fairly accessible for the unsure."
— Katie Johnston, The Boston Globe, May 7, 2013 (** 1/2 stars)
