Last night at a community meeting Blue Ginger chef and Simply Ming host Ming Tsai revealed some juicy details about his upcoming Fort Point restaurant, which he says will be called Blue Dragon. Boston Restaurant Talk reports that Blue Dragon will have 70 seats, will be casual, and will serve lunch and dinner every day but Sunday with possibilities of a late-night menu, too. The Herald says that value will be a focus of the new menu and quotes Tsai saying "What we do at Blue Ginger doesn’t quite exist yet in Boston." Some menu items: $2 to $4 "snacks" like "roasted nuts, deviled tea eggs and sweet potato chips with wasabi salt."
There will also be $4 to $8 small plates like "Korean fried chicken wings, and beef cheek and Chinese celery dumplings" and $10 to $15 main plates like "house-hacked Peking duck and a grilled beef burger with umami glaze." Blue Dragon will be helmed by chef Tom Woods and aims to open by February 21st, partly because Tsai's feng shui master recommends that it happen during the year of the water dragon.
