Nadia Liu Spellman, the daughter of Sally Ling of the long-gone Sally Ling's restaurant on the waterfront, is allegedly now opening a restaurant of her own. The Globe reports that Spellman "plans on opening a restaurant later this year in Boston to bring back some of those traditional flavors" (from her mother's restaurant). According to the Globe, Sally Ling's was an upscale Chinese restaurant that opened in 1984 before relocating to Cambridge and then New Jersey before it closed, apparently in 2011. There, says the Globe, "In the white tablecloth dining room, food was rolled out on carts" and decor included ornate Chinese artwork.
In other upcoming Asian restaurant news, Menton alum Jason Doo is planning to open his own upscale venue, called Kinsai, which may serve dinners with as many as 20 courses, and celebrity chef Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger in Wellesley is opening Blue Dragon in Fort Point, perhaps as soon as February 8.
