The Ginger Exchange is expanding from Inman Square to include a new, second location by Symphony Hall. An employee tells Eater that the new restaurant will be located "right across from Symphony Hall' and will be similar in many ways to the original, which serves predominantly Japanese cuisine in the form of sushi, sashimi, noodle dishes and rice bowls plus pan-Asian items like crab rangoon, summer rolls, bibimbap, and "lett-u-wraps." And of course flaming scorpion bowls. One difference for the new location: a more prominent bar located at the front of the restaurant, with 20 beers on tap and high top tables next to windows that will open onto the street.
The website for The Ginger Exchange says the expansion is headed for "50 Hungtington Ave," and while the employee Eater spoke with could not confirm the exact address, it appears that one is inaccurate due its distance from Symphony Hall, which is closest to the 200 block of Huntington Ave. Also, The Ginger Exchange is not headed for Mission Hill, as was previously thought. Finally, the Symphony Hall crowd will have a decent place to go for some post-Rachmaninoff cocktails on fire. Expect a December or January opening.
UPDATE: The address for the new location of The Ginger Exchange is 250 Huntington Ave, in the space that was once Betty's Wok and Noodle Diner.
